A loan of $825 helped to buy a calf in order to start his own business producing milk.

Edigio's story

Edigio is married and has a seven-year-old son. To generate the income for his household, he works as a security guard in a power sub-station. However the salary that he earns there is not sufficient, so he has decided to start an alternate business with which he will be able to generate income to contribute to his household and to be in better financial condition.

This is how, some months ago, he started the business of raising and selling livestock. Thanks to this his household conditions have been improving. Now his wife and son have the chance to have a better quality of life.

Looking to fill his customers’ orders, Edigio turns to a loan that will allow him to buy a calf. This way he will respond to the large orders from his customers.

His biggest dream is to get this alternate business ahead and to be able to have a better quality of life. He also wants to provide better financial opportunities to his family.
