A loan of $275 helped to buy a cow.

Gerardo's story

Gerardo is from Condega in the Estelí municipality. He is 45 years old, and he has been a farmer for over 30 years. He started helping his parents work in the field when he was 15 years old. He learned, and he acquired plenty of experiences with field work.

He has two children who attend school. His wife helps him with the fieldwork and also with taking care of the house.

He is requesting the loan to buy a cow. He wants to use it to reproduce livestock and to sell milk and curds. This is the way he will improve income for his family and make his business grow.
