A loan of $575 helped to buy a young cow.

Francisco Javier's story

Francisco is a 56-year old farmer, who has been working in agriculture for the past 31 years. This activity has made it possible for him to provide his family with better life conditions. He now works as a butler in a ranch located in Sonsón, Colombia, where he cultivates creole potatoes and peas in the plot that he borrowed from the owner. Given that the plot is very spacious, Francisco wants to buy a young cow that will give him additional income for his family's well-being. He doesn't have the resources to make the investment, which is why he's requesting a loan. Francisco expects to capitalize on the investment and increase the livestock, with an aim to have a large dairy business and be able to become independent in the future.
