Isidro's story

Isidro, 48, lives in San Rafael Oriente, San Miguel department with his wife and three children who are 18, 22 and 24 years of age. He raises cattle and farms. He’s been in business 20 years. He works every day of the week from 5am until 5pm; he learned this occupation from his father.

He is asking for a loan to buy three calves. This is a significant purchase for him in that it will increase his herd size and when they grow he will be able to earn higher profits.

Isidro’s goal is to stay in business in order to cover household expenses and to continue struggling to get ahead together with his family.
