A loan of $1,025 helped to buy another dairy cow and increase his production of milk.


José Andrei's story

Jose Andrei lives in Cartago, Costa Rica. He has more than six years of working with dairy cattle. Dairy is one of his passions and this is why he wants a loan of 500,000 (five hundred thousand colones) to buy a dairy cow, with which he can begin his dairy project.

He knows that an additional cow requires a lot of work and sacrifice for both himself and his mother, who helps him with the work. Still, his desire to run his own successful business and continue to improve the quality of life for his family are a great motivation for him.
