A loan helped to buy cattle.


Arcelio Jose's story

Arcelio is from the Corozal, Sucre. He is an honorable, honest and helpful man. His desire for a better future led him to start his bovine livestock business in the year 2000. Now 62 years old, his dream is to improve his housing.

His self-employment has improved his quality of life and he dreams of providing jobs for others, owning his own home and travelling. Every morning when he wakes up to work, he thinks of his family and his dreams and this fuels his desire to go out and give it his all. Arcelio is requesting a loan to purchase cattle. This would allow him to increase his production and inventory and he hopes this will bring greater earnings.
