Irvin is 23 years old. Unfortunately, he was not able to attend university due to his family's economic situation. He has a live-in partner. He has no children, and his partner dedicates herself to being a homemaker. Only the two of them live in their house.
For 10 years, he has worked as a day laborer in agriculture and ranching. He buys and sells livestock. He learned all of this on his own initiative. He gets up at 4 in the morning to go to his employer's property. He walks 5 kilometers, and his work day ends at 1 in the afternoon.
The loan will be used to buy two calves to fatten up. He will sell them a few months later, hoping to make a good profit and to repeat the process.
He wants to become known as a livestock merchant, become independent, have his own businesses, have children, and give them the opportunity to study that he did not have.
