A loan of $600 helped to buy medium-sized calves and then sell them at better prices. This will allow Isabel to stabilize his family's economic circumstances.


Isabel's story

Isabel is married and currently lives with his wife and two children, who are between the ages of 28 and 20. Isabel dedicates himself to raising livestock and farming. He learned this trade from his father and has already had many years of experience working independently. He does his agricultural work with help of his youngest son. His work schedule is from seven in the morning to four in the afternoon. One of the advantages that Isabel has is that he has a well-established client portfolio making it easy for his to distribute the product.

The loan that he's asked for will allow him to buy medium-sized calves and then sell them at better prices. This will allow him to stabilize his family's financial circumstances. The investment will help Isabel to strengthen his business and allow him to have more satisfied customers. The risks are low because the prices at which livestock are sold are very favorable for him and his customers.

Isabel's aspirations are to improve his way of life that he shares with his family, increase the number of cattle, and have economic stability to reduce his debts.
