A loan of $800 helped to buy three heifers.


Roberto's story

Roberto is 54 years old. He has worked in agriculture for a number of years, having learned it from his father. He gets up at 4:30 a.m. to go to the field where his corn and bean crops are. He spends most of his time there, and later goes home to do the household chores because his wife abandoned him and his children now live with their own families. The loan that he is requesting is to buy three heifers, which he will raise to produce milk to sell. His wish is to buy more cows to produce dairy products and have another source of income.
