José Abdón's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase a cow to raise and later sell.

José Abdón's story

José studied up to the 3rd grade in school, is married, and his spouse works at the household tasks. He has two young children who are studying.

José works in agriculture and raising animals. He is busy all day long and his spouse helps him.

The loan use is to purchase a cow to raise and later sell. Previously, he was supported by a loan which he invested in raising animals and has finished paying it off.

José dreams of having more cattle and, so, of having more earnings from this business to provide his children with a better quality of life.
