A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase a calved cow and a bull.

Candelario Noe's story

Candelario is 22 years old and is in a relationship. He has worked for the past 6 years with his father in agriculture and cattle-raising. By his own means he bought a cow and from that cow he now has 8 more. To purchase the cow feed, he travels 25 minutes by foot to the city and then takes a 30-minute bus ride.

Candelario is requesting this loan to purchase a calved cow and a bull. He has 8 cows and no bull, and he wants to take advantage of both his youth and his 98,000 square meters of land.

Upon receiving this funding, things will improve for Candelario in all aspects. He states that with these cows he will provide daily food and will thus offer his wife a decent life.

Candelario mentions that with God's blessing he plans to adequately fix the land and have three children with his wife. He wants to be prepared when this happens, both economically and emotionally, to avoid problems in the future.
