Jaime Rodrigo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy two heifers and feed.

Jaime Rodrigo's story

Rodrigo, age 56, is single and lives with his sister, brother, and nephews in a mountain community surrounded by the cold "paramanos" [Andean moors]. In this area, which is outside the village of Tufiño, the road is almost inaccessible.

For some years, he has worked raising diary cattle and Sebu, which he cares for very well. They are the source of his income, because due to his age, he cannot work as a laborer.

Rodrigo again needs financial help to buy two heifers that he will raise. In the future they will be milk cows, and with the income from the sale of their calves, he will be able to continue paying the expenses of his humble family. He hopes to continue supporting his household.
