A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a herd of calves to raise and then sell.


Luis Mariano's story

Luis is 62 years old. He is currently married and his children are independent and live separately.

Luis has worked in agriculture from a young age, and this activity is his main source of financial income that has allowed him to support his wife and children in recent years. He also knows about cattle and has set up a vehicle repair workshop.

He will use this funding to buy a herd of calves to raise and then sell.

His dream is to continue his farming and cattle-raising work and his vehicle repair workshop, as only in this way will he be able to meet his wife's needs.
