A loan of $1,100 helped purchase Cattle.

Lisímaco's story

Lisímaco B. A. is 65 years old. He is married and has 3 children who are his top priority. They are 25, 18 and 12 years old. He wants the loan to buy some calves and to feed them. He wants to care for the cattle adequately to make the most income possible when they’re sold. He also wants to increase the number of animals and care for them in the best conditions. He has an ideal area to care for and breed cattle. It’s the first time he has had a loan from FUDECOSUR and he’s very happy with how easy they made it for him. Mr. Lisímaco has worked with cattle for various years. He hopes to offer his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability in the future. And he hopes to continue to grow as a person and as a laborer.
