Raúl Alfonso's story

Raúl is married and his wife works in agriculture.

Raúl grows peppers and green beans which he learned thanks to his father. He plants near his house and his wife helps him. In addition, he takes care of cattle for sale. His working hours are from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm.

He needs a loan to buy a cow for milk production.

Raúl dreams of increasing his cattle herd and enjoying a better quality of life.
