A loan of $1,500 helped to build a wall to protect his cows.

Wilber's story

Wilber, 26, lives in the Maica-Kaspichaca area, in the west, in El Callejón. He has two young children and is married to Marlene.

Little by little they have managed to strengthen their farm, where they produce raw milk and sell to the industrial milk plant. Milk production is intensive in the area. They have a good dairy herd that the family manages, selling a large part of the production. Their livestock is a high-quality breed. They work on land their parents gave them.

Currently they need to buy a gate for the entrance to the house and farm. In previous years he has been able to build walls on his property, and they're not protected. This means the cows could leave or undesirable people could come in and steal something. This is why he's requesting the loan to build a wall to protect his cows.

The photo shows Wilber and his wife on a normal work day. With the help they'll be able to continue improving their family's living conditions.
