Santiago Alexander's story

Santiago is a young country boy with a strong and responsible character who lives with his parents and siblings in the community of Frailejón. With his parents' guidance, he opened up his own business raising fattening and dairy cattle six years ago. This helped him make extra income for his household since he also worked as a day laborer and driver when the opportunity would arise.

Santiago wants to promote his cattle-raising business, which is why he is requesting help to buy cattle, vaccines, and food with the help of his mother.

He is hopeful that his entrepreneurship will yield earnings that will allow him to continue supporting his parents.
