A loan of $1,000 helped to buy five small calves.


Jose Humberto's story

José lives with his 3 year old son. He breeds cattle and pigs for a living, a job he has done for the past 3 years. Following in his father’s footsteps, he works everyday and goes to buy and sell on market day.

He will use the loan to buy five small calves to raise in his pasture and when the time comes, he will sell them for a profit, thus improving his income.

José’s dream is to build his own house, to provide his son with a better future which is something that he needs and also to have greater financial stability.
