A loan of $1,000 helped to buy two dairy cows.


Arnoldo's story

Arnoldo O. U. is 40 years old and lives in the town of San Juan Opico, in the department of La Libertad. He lives with his wife, who looks after the household chores, and their two young children. Arnoldo owns a small farm in which he raises cattle to sell. Thanks to his excellent quality standards, Arnoldo has many customers in spite of the fact that he hasn't been in charge of running this business for very long. However, he has a lot of experience since he has been in the business alongside his father for his whole life. Arnoldo is requesting a loan in order to be able to buy more feed for his cattle and also so that he can buy two dairy cows to sell their milk and use for his own family's consumption. Arnoldo hopes to improve his business and therefore be able to provide his wife and children with a better life.
