A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase his production.


Leonardo Jose's story

Leonardo is 49-year-old farmer who was born into a humble family that has always been devoted to their work in the fields. Thanks to the lessons from his parents, he now has his own business of raising animals.

His tenacity, strength, and drive to succeed are what motivate him to wake up each day. Leonardo looks for new ways to get ahead. For this reason, he is requesting a loan to buy dairy cows to increase his production so that he can satisfy the demand. He hopes to achieve good results and improve his earnings so that he can continue to provide for some of his family’s needs.
