A loan helped to buy four calves, salt, and balanced feed.


Jhon's story

Jhon is a 22-year old young person. He and his family are Colombian. He lives in the Cristóbal Colon parish in a rented house.

Jhon is considered a level-headed, honest, and hard-working youth. With his own savings from working as a day laborer, he bought his first calf, which he raised for 6 months in order to be able to sell it.

This is work that Jhon likes a lot. For this reason, he wants to advance his business with the addition of four calves to raise.

So that he can reach this goal, he is requesting his second loan through Vision Fund Ecuador, as it is one of the few institutions that includes foreigners in the financial system, and this is an opportunity for these people that they need.

Jhon wants, in the future, to have a farm to boost his livestock-raising, so that he can get ahead.
