Arcadio Jose's story
Arcadio, 25, is an enterprising man who learned from his father the practices of raising livestock. He loves the life in the countryside. A couple of years ago he decided to start his business of breeding and selling livestock. Thanks to a previous Kiva loan through MiCrédito, he was able to buy some cows of breed which have already calved, and this has generated incremental business. Arcadio has now returned to Kiva and MiCredito asking for a loan to cover the expenses associated with the birth of a calf, including veterinary fees, vaccines, medications, vitamins, and more. In the future, Arcadio would like to set up a slaughterhouse and to start production of dairy products.
