Jean Carlos's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase a cow, improve milk production, increase his income and improve his family's quality of life.

Jean Carlos's story

Jean Carlos has worked for 15 years raising cattle with his father. Starting when he was very little, his father taught him to love animals.

Jean Carlos would like to expand his production. For this reason, he is applying for a loan to purchase a cow to help him with his dairy production, to grow little by little with more cattle, and thus have higher production, to increase his income and improve his quality of life and that of those who help him.
