A loan helped to buy a cow and feed.


Hugo Alfonso's story

Hugo is a 52-year old man who lives with his youngest son, as the others have made their own homes. After his wife passed away, Hugo had to take on raising his children on his own. It was not easy but he managed it thanks to his jobs as a public employee and raising cattle, a job that he does with the help of his father who takes care of the animals while he goes to his other job.

Hugo wants to buy a cow that is being offered at a good price, so he is asking for help from the organization, hoping to improve his income.
