Jabiel Antonio
Jabiel is 32 years old, single, and lives in the Villa Alvarez District with his mother, who helps with the work around the farm. In addition, he looks after a small parcel of land that his mother inherited and will help him start accumulating his own assets. This property will be set aside for raising, nursing, and caring for a small herd of cattle and will help facilitate good sanitation and nutritional management.

Jabiel is requesting his third loan to buy calves to fatten and raise for later resale. His objective is for his animals to achieve a good weight so that he can obtain higher earnings and provide better living conditions for his family. He hopes to get ahead and strengthen his herd so that he can leave it as an inheritance for when he has children.
