A loan helped to purchase some heifers, balanced feed and vitamins.

Michael Alexis's story

Michael, 20, is responsible, sociable, and cheerful. He lives with his mother, siblings, his parents' siblings and a cousin. He has always enjoyed taking the initiative to earn his own income in addition to helping his family, so he started to work raising dairy cattle, an activity that brings in some money to cover his personal and family expenses.

Michael would very much like to continue increasing his head of dairy cattle in order to improve production, and this is why he is applying for a loan to purchase some heifers, balanced feed, and vitamins. His profits will thus increase.
