A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase female calves.

Mario's story

Mario is 57 years old. He is a very active man who, along with his wife and children, has struggled to get ahead. He is a farmer, and he sells milk. He has a parcel of land in the Los Laureles Colonia which provides him with income to cover his family expenses. He has worked as a farmer since he was a child. His father taught him the trade he now practices. He is requesting his second loan from AFODENIC to invest by purchasing female calves so that when they give birth he can have better income and therefore be able to improve his quality of life. His dream is to increase his herd of livestock and to stay healthy.
