A loan of $1,050 helped to buy supplies, food, and medicine for the care of his animals.


Alex's story

Alex has increased his production since the last loan that he obtained from Fundacion Alternativa. His wife Diana, who is 30 years old, has been able to continue with the household chores and with the personalized care of their two children. One of their children, thanks to his own efforts and that of his parents, already was able to be admitted to a particular school of the best quality. Alex inherited the business of stockbreeding from his older brothers, with whom he went to the town fair since he was a boy. As his business has grown, today he requires a loan so that his animals can be well taken care of, and be sold at a good price in the town's fair. He will use the loan to buy cleaning supplies, vitamins, and food which allow the cattle to stay healthy, and so that there are not complications upon offering them to buyers. His dream is to have a home of his own. Little by little the dream is taking form. Currently he already has a plot of land which is the start of obtaining this dream. On this land he will start the construction of his home. The land where he currently lives belongs to his mother and he wants to have something of his own that his children can inherit.
