A loan of $850 helped to buy cattle.


Augusto Jose's story

Mr. Augusto is 51 and married, and his wife is a homemaker. They have three daughters, ages 18, 13 and 10. The oldest one goes to college, the second one is in secondary school and the youngest is in elementary. Augusto is a respectable person and very much loved by his neighbors, but above all, he is very responsible. With a lot of sacrifice he has been able to provide for his family, which lives in the Pikin Guerrero County. He has been a farmer for a long time, having learned the trade from his parents, and he uses his experience to full advantage by selling milk from his dairy cattle and the calves he fattens to sell for a good profit. He is requesting a loan to buy cattle to increase his livestock business little by little. His greatest desire is to stay healthy and continue working to put bread on the table for his family every day.
