A loan helped to buy a cow.


Kelvin Ernesto's story

Kelvin is 24 years old and has a high-school education. He lives with his partner, who is a homemaker.

Kelvin works raising cattle. He has been doing this for one year and learned the trade from his father who is also a cattle rancher. He keeps his cattle on a plot of land located 1.5 kilometers from his home and travels there on his bicycle. He also works at a vegetable stand.

He needs this loan to buy a cow in order to increase his herd.

Kelvin's dream is to finish repairing his house.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Mariana Sanchis.
