A loan of $500 helps to buy a cow.


Maria's story

Maria is 32 years old, and is an honest, sensible, and hardworking woman. She is married, and at the moment they live in their parents' house. Maria still has not been able to have children and this worries her. Like the majority of the people in the fields, Maria and her husband earn their living doing various agricultural jobs. In this way they fight to make their own income.

Maria is looking for financing to be able to buy a cow to increase her business with the goal of producing more liters of milk to turn in to harvest. This will allow her to improve her income a little for her home, guaranteeing stability and wellbeing for her entire beautiful family.
