A loan of $475 helped to buy a heifer.


Luis Arnoldo's story

Luis, 30 years old, is single and a farmer. He has a basic primary education and is originally from the region of San Lorenzo in the suburbs of Teustepe. He began to work with his father and brothers at 8 years old.

He plants beans. One of his favorite activities is the fattening of animals and working at raising and caring for his livestock, an activity that he performs during the summer. In the winter, he dedicates his time to planting beans, corn, and wheat.

He requires the funding to buy a heifer. In this way, he will search for how to improve the production of milk and livestock to sell, always with the goal of having a better quality of life.
