Juan Angel's story

Juan is a very well-known person in the zone because he is sociable and very hard-working. He is married and has four children, of whom only one lives with him. The others are already independent and live in other homes.

The economic activity that he has developed since he was very young is cultivating basic grains and raising cattle. He learned this work thanks to his parents, and it has served him to raise his own family.

He has decided to apply for a loan to buy a cow and its calf, in addition to concentrate to feed them. This will allow him to have a better inventory in his business, with which he will increase his income, allowing him to thus improve the lifestyle that he shares with his loved ones.

The goals Juan has set are to further strengthen his business and improve the economic circumstances that he has now.
