Jose Aralfo's story

José is married and has four children. To generate household income he works as a foreman on a hacienda. He’s been in this line of work for several years and has gained good experience.

Now, he has a great opportunity his employer is offering him that he doesn’t want to pass up. His employer is letting him keep cattle on the ranch so that he can increase his income without having to pay any money for the land where he’ll care for the cattle. This is why José needs a loan to buy cattle and start this activity and generate better income for his home.

In this way he will be able to increase his income considerably allowing his family to have a better quality of life and better opportunities for economic progress. His greatest dream is to have his own farm in the future and to raise cattle there and also to leave his children a more stable home.
