A loan of $1,000 helped to buy three livestock (cows).


Marcelino's story

Marcelino is 41 years old. He lives with his 39 year-old wife and they have three children aged 17, 12 and 4. Marcelino works in cattle ranching and its derivatives, raising cattle. He has done this for 25 years; it's a job he learned from his father. He is applying for a loan to buy three livestock to fatten up. This investment will help him to increase the number of cattle and so have more chance to sell in the future. His hope is that his children study and prepare themselves professionally.
