A loan of $800 helped buy three bovines to fatten up and sell.

Álvaro's story

Álvaro, 48, has a partner and 5 children. He’s been a farmer, land and livestock, since he was little, cultivating the soil alongside his father. With much effort, they sent him to school to study a degree in agriculture. With the passing of time, he gained experience in the area of veterinary. Previously, he was in a common-law relationship and had 4 children. Álvaro continues to work in agriculture, livestock and as a veterinarian.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy 3 bovines to fatten up and sell. That way he’ll have another source of income when he sells the animals at a better price. His purpose is to learn more about veterinary because it is an area that presents more opportunities and more income.
