A loan of $1,150 helped to buy cattle, increasing productive capacity, and to fill customer orders.

Hernando De Jesus's story

Hernando has been raising cattle since he was very young. His father also did this and taught his son from an early age. Little by little, Hernando has been increasing the quantity of cattle he has on his land and thanks to his effort, he has been able to generate more income to sustain his family. The good quality and service he offers has resulted in customer satisfaction and with the passage of time, he has won over additional customers for his business.

Since Hernando now has more customer orders than he can satisfy, he is looking for ways to increase the quantity of cattle he raises on his land, and to offer his customers good sales. However, since he lacks sufficient capital to buy new cattle to raise, Hernando is seeking a loan that would offer the possibility of buying the cattle necessary to increase his productive capacity, allowing him to fill his customers' orders.

Hernando hopes in this way to increase his income and offer his wife a better quality of life. In addition, Hernando dreams of obtaining a larger parcel of land where he could employ other people who are in very vulnerable situations and have never found work opportunities.
