A loan of $700 helped to buy cattle to resell as meat.


Hermogenes's story

Señor Hermógenes was part of the group “La Merced” for six loan periods, but then he took out a loan independently. This will be his thirteenth loan. He runs a food store where he sells meat with beef as a speciality. He travels into the mountains to buy the meat. He takes the cattle to the municipal slaughterhouse where they are butchered. Hermógenes sells the meat to several small businesses. His wife sells meat also, but chicken rather than beef. They have three children, two of whom are in college, and the youngest is still in high school. He is a very responsible client.
