A loan of $1,000 helped to buy 2 grazing dairy cows.

José Norberto's story

José, 50 years old, lives with his life partner, has 2 children and is responsible for providing for his family. Ever since he was a young boy, he has worked buying and selling livestock, as his father did before him. On days when he is selling, he gets up very early as this type of work is carried out during the morning.
Throughout the week he buys his livestock from places located in the area surrounding his home. He spends 2 days each week in the town square where he sells his animals.
He is applying for a loan to buy 2 grazing dairy cows so that he can increase the size of his of dairy herd, which will improve his earnings for his family. He wants to buy more dairy livestock so that he can continue to improve his family's income.
