A loan of $1,450 helped to buy a cow to slaughter.


Juan's story

Juan is 53 years old. He has been married to 48-year-old Bernada for more than 32 years. They have five children together. Two of their children are school age and three are already adults and, thanks to their parents, have already become professionals.

Twenty years ago, Juan set up a small grocery store in his home where his wife worked while he bought animals to slaughter and then sold their meat in the store. The family is currently working together as theirs is the biggest and busiest shopping place in the town. Thanks to this business, they have been able to support themselves and help each other out.

Juan would like to buy more animals to slaughter as he makes a lot of sales at this time of year. This is why he is requesting a loan. He is very grateful for this opportunity to make progress that he is receiving.
