Diego German's story

Diego is a humble young man who lives in the community of María Magdalena, which is fifteen minutes from the city. The area is a village with limited communication channels whose residents are low-income. However, despite all that, Diego and his family have been able to get ahead through agricultural work, such as farming, ranching and raising small animals. That is how they meet their household needs.

For over eight years, Diego has earned his living raising dairy cattle. The business has allowed him to support his parents a bit financially. He hopes to keep driving his business forward, which is why he is requesting some assistance. Diego wants to purchase a heifer, salt, molasses and feed. He hopes that will increase his cattle's milk production, which would generate a larger profit.
