Napoleon Alexander's story
Napoleón is 35 years old, studied until the 3rd grade, and is married with two children. He has worked raising livestock since he was 7 years old, and at age 9 his mother bought him a cow whose care he was in charge of. He left his studies to work on a cattle ranch, which he is now in charge of. He had 8 animals of his own, four of which he sold to make home improvements. He is a very hardworking person. He works taking care of the cattle ranch, and also cultivates 28,000 square meters of corn and 7,000 square meters of beans. Additionally, he has his own livestock. To get to his work, he has to travel 30 minutes, while his wife is in charge of the care of the home and their children. He needs the loan to buy a cow and a calf, to raise and to fatten. With the sale of this livestock he intends to make improvements to his home. He also hopes to get milk to make dairy products. His dream is to help his children with school when he can and to have more livestock.
