A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase 5 heads of cattle to respond to the demand of a customer.


Ricardo Alonso's story

Ricardo has worked in agriculture for 12 years, because his father does this work and he had to work alongside his father to be able to help with the family's economic situation. Later, he got other jobs where he learned to raise cattle, and therefore one day, he decided to start working independently with his own cattle. Nowadays he has some raised cattle with which he hopes to respond to a customer's order, but as another customer has made a large order, Ricardo needs a loan to purchase 5 heads of cattle to respond to the demand of one customer. His dream is to have a big business which generates big profits and therefore to be able to get his own house.
