A loan of $800 helped to purchase 2 calves to raise and then sell.


José Luis's story

José, 50 years old, did not have the opportunity to study. He is married and his wife takes care of the household tasks. Six children live with him, of whom 2 work and help him economically.

José works in agriculture and raising animals. His children help with the field work. He sells the cattle when they are well developed and, so, has good earnings.

With his previous Kiva loan, he was able to invest in his work and has already paid off the debt. He needs another loan to purchase 2 calves to raise and then sell.

José wants to have more cattle to continue selling since it is a rather profitable business.
