A loan helped to purchase cattle to fatten and sell.


Luis Gabriel's story

Luis, age 44, has shown that luck is nothing more than preparation united with a good opportunity. Thanks to his efforts he has managed to break through in the market and today has a microbusiness raising dairy cows. They guarantee the wellbeing of his family and better living conditions for his 3 children. Not everything has been rosy in his life, since his family never had the resources to offer him an education, so he had to work to reach his own goals.

Today he feels proud and is an example in his community because of his sacrifice and dedication. With the goal of increasing his production capacity, he is requesting a loan to purchase cattle to fatten and sell.
