A loan of $1,050 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Carlos Enrique's story

From a young age Carlos Enrique learned from his father about farm work and today at 68 years of age he continues carrying out this work in order to have a source of income during this difficult economical time.

Carolos has a dairy cow and some chickens and very early every day he milks the cow and collects the eggs to sell later. However, sales are not always good, and the yield not as much as he hoped for, which is why Carlos Enrique sees the necessity of buying another cow that would allow him to increase his profits.

Well, at his age his only dream is to improve his quality of life, and to continue working with dedication to achieve it, and thus to have a more peaceful life at the side of his wife and his five children.
