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


A loan helped to buy a cow to sell its milk, so that he can increase his income.


Mario's story

Mario is a hard working, 67-year-old man. He lives with his 4 children and wife in the area of Cachana, which is located in Cotahuasi. He is dedicated to agriculture and raising cattle. He takes a lot of care in the food he offers the cattle.

He requests the micro-loan to be able to buy a cow to sell its milk, so that he can increase his income. In the future, he hopes to be able to improve his house so that his family can live comfortably and can continue to have good health.
