A loan of $1,250 helped to buy more cattle.

Pedro's story

Pedro, 54, is married and has two school-aged children, 7 and 4 years old. He is in the business of buying and selling cattle. He buys them in the villages near where he lives and always pays in cash. He has a fixed customer base and sells to the merchants in the town and neighboring counties. A very hard worker, he says he began his business 30 years ago when he was young. Since his parents were poor and unable to give him a career, he went into farming.

He is the head of household of a hard-working family and gets up early in the morning to go out to care for the cattle, making sure they are healthy and well fed. Pedro is requesting this loan to buy more cattle, especially bred cows.
