Mario Ernesto's story
Mario is 39 years old and completed up to seventh grade at school. He is married; his partner looks after the household chores and also washes clothes to earn money. The couple has two children who live at home. Only these three people depend on Mario. Mario has been working with grazing cattle for three years. He learned the trade from one of his brothers-in-law and decided to work in this area as it allows him to earn an extra income. Mario also works in farming and as a carpenter, though previously he was employed by somebody else for this. Mario does not have to travel for work as he does his farming, carpentry work, and cattle raising on the same land. He arrives at work on foot. Mario works from 6am until 3pm, and his wife and eldest son help with his different businesses. This loan will be used to buy grazing cattle. With more cattle, Mario can enjoy a higher quality of life. This loan will help Mario to buy the cattle in one payment. Mario has big dreams of expanding his businesses; he also wants his children to study and have a good education. Mario will use his profits to help his family and to pay off his loan. With good management, and the help of "Credicampo", these loans can help Mario to do better in life.
