A loan of $1,500 helped to buy two cows for double milking for milk production.

Vicente's story

Vicente is a humble person from the Ecuadorian plains. Vicente is 48. He has 5 children and lives with his wife and children. Vicente is defined as a charismatic, honest, responsible and very cheerful person during the time he passes with his family. Vicente loves his family very much and he really likes the countryside. That is why, since he was little, he has worked in farming and raising animals.

The loan he has asked FODEMI for will be invested in buying two cows for double milking, because he distributes milk. Vicente says that working in the fields is arduous but has a lot of benefits, because he spends his time with his family and when you really work hard the earnings are very good.

Vicente's dream is to have a small farm with a lot of heads of cattle to be a milk distributor and sell in the markets and in the communities surrounding the area where Vicente lives.
