A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase cows, feed, vaccines, and vitamins.

Rafael's story

Rafael is married. He lives with his wife and their four children. Very early in the morning, Rafael starts his work of taking care of his cattle. He milks the cows starting at 4am. This job requires a great amount of time. He learned this trade from his parents.

At the moment, Rafael wants to buy a few cows as well as feed, vaccines, and vitamins. This purchase will help improve the condition of his cattle, which will give them a better chance of being sold at market.

Rafael’s dream is to increase the number in his herd so that his family will be in better financial standing. He has a large family, so it requires much effort to provide them with a comfortable life.
