Jesús's story

Jesús, aged 49, is a single father who lives with his only son, aged 12, who attends school. He owns the house in which they live. He has been raising cattle for 20 years. He has 50 cows and 20 calves. In the back of his field he has planted 10 hectares of trees for palm oil production. Jesús likes his work because thanks to his effort and continuous hard work he can meet his goal to provide for everything that his son needs, whom he wants to become a professional worker. On the other hand, his business is highly profitable, because his animals, mainly milk cows, produce enough milk to allow him to sell every second day 20 to 40 boxes of milk to a dairy. And he sells also every fortnight his palm oil to an oil company.

He has had 11 loans with Microfinanzas Prisma. In his communal bank he likes that all the members get along fine and are quiet and very responsible persons.
