Orlando is 44 years old. He lives in the municipality of Esparta, Atlántida with his wife and three children. Orlando has grown up with farming and livestock-raising, and has carried on this work for 20 years.

He has his own land where he keeps cattle, and little by little he has made his business grow. He sells his milk production in the local market.

He has applied for two previous loans from ODEF, and currently he is applying for his third loan, which is for 20,000 lempiras. With it, he is going to maintain his cow pasture, as it needs clearing and watering. This is so that it will grow rapidly and feed the animals, and so improve milk production.
