A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a male calf and to pay for farmworkers to clean and maintain his land.


Jose Victor's story

José is 56 years old, married and the father of three grown children. He is a rancher. His father taught him this trade when he was little. He started his business with his own money, money that he earned selling male calves. Also he has another business, selling milk. With these earnings he supports his cattle business. These small businesses help him maintain his cattle well and also he uses these earnings to improve the quality of life for his family. He says that with the help of his family they can all succeed. José is asking for this loan in order to buy mature calves and to pay for farmworkers to clean and maintain his land. This will help him maintain his farm so that his animals are healthy. In this way he can increase his earnings. His future goals are to repair and update his whole farm and to care for his cattle so that they are healthy.
