A loan helped to purchase a heifer for breeding.


José Santos's story

José lives with his spouse and a granddaughter who is studying in school. His children are now independent.

José works in agriculture and learned it from his father. In addition he raises livestock. From very early in the morning, he goes to work where his crops are and he also brings his animals so that they can feed.

José needs a loan to purchase a heifer for breeding.

He dreams of continuing to work, of having more livestock, and he wants his granddaughter to study at the university.
