A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a cow.


John Fredy's story

Thirty-one-year-old John Fredy has worked in the fields since he was a child. He learned farming and ranching thanks to his father. Currently, he works in dairy farming, which has become the source of income for his family, which is made up of his wife and two young children.

His greatest wish is to be able to secure a decent home and a better quality of life for his family. In order to achieve his dream, Fredy wants to increase his production of milk, which is why he is asking for a loan to buy a cow. He expects this to increase his profits so he can offer his children a good education.
