Lucio's story

Lucio is married and lives with his wife and six children, among whom are twins. Their ages are 21, 18, 18, 17, 15 and 12 years. He works with livestock and has dedicated many years to this business since his father was also a cattle farmer. Thus he grew up helping his father and learning the work. His schedule is from 5 a.m. until 5 p.m.

He is seeking a loan for the purchase of cattle and pigs, and will also buy fertilizer and seeds for sowing corn. This loan will help him increase the number of animals, both cattle and pigs. He will also grow corn, which helps greatly with the family budget.

For Lucio this loan is a big opportunity, since it will benefit his business and likewise his family will be better fed because of the commercial growth he will see.
