Noe is 56 years old, married, and has three children. The two youngest still live with him. He was only able to study to the fourth grade. His wife is a homemaker and helps him with the farm work.
Noe is a cattle merchant and has been buying and selling animals, fattening them up, and selling them for four years, but he has been a farmer since he was a child and he is grateful to his father for having taught him.
He will use this loan to buy two steers, fatten them up, and sell them for a good price.
He hopes to continue working in this way so that he can have a cattle herd and maybe also have some dairy cows.
