José Oscar's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cattle for breeding and subsequent sale.

José Oscar's story

Jose went to school until ninth grade when he couldnt continue as they were unable to afford school any longer. He is single and lives with his parents.

Jose works in agriculture which he learned from his father. They raise cattle for the purpose of selling it at a better price.

José is a very enterprising young man. He has received a loan previously and fully repaid his debt. He is asking for a new loan to buy cattle which he raises and sells afterwards.

His goal is to have a family one day, to continue working and be able to put away savings for the future.
