A loan of $850 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Mariano Edgar's story

Mariano Edgar is 49 years old and is a farmer who works producing dairy products. He gets up at 4 am every day to start his jobs. This activity is his only source of income for supporting his family, made up of his wife and 3 children.

His biggest challenge is getting his children ahead, as he makes a great effort to offer them a good education and this means they have to travel every day to the town of Yarumal, Colombia for their classes.

He dreams of being able to have his own farm and build a home for his family. At the moment they find themselves asking for a loan to buy a dairy cow with the aim of increasing his income and starting to build his dreams.
