Natividad works growing basic grains and raising livestock, work that he learned at an early age. Before having this business he worked in a cantina. Now, his wife and his son help him with his agricultural work.
The loan that he is asking for is to buy a cow, with which he will obtain more milk. In the future, he plans to sell the cow for a better price than that at which he acquired it.
His dream is for his daughter to be able to study at the university and become a professional. With the income he earns from investing this loan, he iwll support his daughter's education expenses, as well as pay for transportation costs and other household expenses.
