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

A loan helped to buy a calf, improve fencing, and pay workers to improve the quality of life of his animals, increasing his income and helping his children with their studies.

Mariano's story

Mariano has worked raising livestock for 6 years. His goal is to have more income.

For this reason, he's requesting a loan to buy a calf, improve his fencing, and pay laborers so that his animals have a good place. Additionally, with the purchase of the calf, he'll be able to start his feeding program.

In this way, he'll improve his economic income and, at the same time, help his children with their studies and improve his family's quality of life.
