A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase 2 heifers to raise and then sell.

Sebastian's story

Sebastián, 57 years old, is partnered and his partner works at the household tasks.

Sebastián works in agriculture and he learned this business from his father. He also likes to raise cattle. For him, it has not been easy to get his family ahead without having a profession which would allow him to have a better job. He cultivates 2 hectares of corn and one of beans near his house.

The loan will be used to purchase 2 heifers to raise and then sell. In the past, he was supported by a Kiva loan to invest in his work he has already finished paying it off.

His goal is to make good use of the earnings to pay off the loan punctually since he has always characterized himself as being someone responsible.
