A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase diary cows.


Daniel's story

Daniel is married, 55 years old, and lives in the city of Curuguaty. He tells us that he is a merchant since [his occupation is] the sale of milk and the production of cheese. He explains that he produces 40 to 50 liters of milk per day and from what is left over each day he produces cheeses that are sold; he [is able] to make at least 25 kilos of cheese each week. In addition to that, he tells us that he has a fair amount of cattle that help him work and [transport] his products. [Daniel] is a very hardworking person and has a strong yearning to continue working and progressing. He requests the loan for the purchase of two more dairy cows in order to increase his milk production. That way, he will be able to generate more revenue and continue helping his family.
