A loan of $850 helped to buy cattle.


Luis Javier's story

Luis Javier, 27, is a man committed to his work. He has worked in agriculture and ranching since his childhood, because of family tradition. Currently, he works in ranching, work which lets him generate income to support his parents, who are elderly and in delicate health. Every day, he gets up at four in the morning to start work and he finishes up at four in the afternoon. He says that the fields have been and will be his best home. He is grateful to his parents for all they have given him and thinks that the best repayment he can offer is his love. He dreams of having more livestock to improve the dairy and earn more income, with which he can guarantee his parents an old age without financial concerns. This is why he is asking for a loan, which he hopes will finance the purchase of livestock, since he doesn't have his own resources for this investment.
