A loan of $950 helped to buy a cow to raise.

Luís Ángel's story

Luis is 52 and went to school until 5th grade. He's single and comes from a very humble but hardworking family. He lives with his mother and brother.

Luis earns a living in agriculture and has been working the land for more than 23 years. He grows corn, beans, millet and also cares for cattle.

When his father took him to the fields, he learned about all the work. He works very close to his house, so he doesn't need a method of transportation to live. He starts work at 6 a.m. and finishes at noon.

In the past, he was supported with a Kiva loan for cattle and successfully paid off the best. He needs a new loan to buy a cow to raise.

He wants to continue caring for his mother since she's old, and also wants to help his brother with what he needs.
