A loan of $600 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Santiago's story

Santiago is 19 years old and sells milk and cheese. He has cows and lives in Batallas. The people there are farmers and raise livestock. This will be his first loan through the institution. He will use the money from this loan to buy a dairy cow that is being offered to him at a low price and he wants to take advantage of this opportunity. His is asking for this loan because he doesn’t have the money to buy the cow and having it will provide many benefits because he will be able to have more milk, be able to make more cheese, and increase his income.

Santiago has challenges in his business such as buying bedding periodically and he will use these benefits to improve his livestock. He dreams of buying other cows.
