A loan of $1,000 helped to buy construction material to put a roof on his livestock stables.


Maximo's story

Mr. Maximo is a well-known, hard-working person in his group. He lives with his common-law wife and three children whom he supports and maintains through his work on the plantation. His market is local and competition is ever increasing. Currently his income allows him merely to survive. He earns a living raising cattle and pigs. In the mornings his children go to school and in the afternoons they help him on the plantation.

This is his first loan and he plans to use it to buy materials to put a roof over the pig stable, as well as obtain other products so he can generate more income and improve his family's lifestyle.
