A loan of $400 helped to buy non-dairy cattle and also supplies for sowing corn and chili peppers.

Walter Milton's story

Walter is a crop farmer and livestock farmer. He is 37 years old and lives in his own home in El Transito, in San Miguel department, with a sister and three nephews / nieces. Walter learned his trade as a young boy, working alongside his father in the fields. Walter grows corn and chili peppers. He also looks after his own cattle.

Walter would like to buy some non-dairy cattle and also sow corn and chili peppers. He is requesting this loan to buy the cattle and the materials he needs to sow his crops (manure, seed and fertilizers). He will use his loan to buy the materials he needs to sow his crops and thereby continue with his farming.

Walter's goal is to continue searching every day for the means to carry out his work and increase his number of cattle since this work puts food on the table. Walter hopes that this investment will provide him with an abundant harvest.
