A loan of $1,450 helped to buy two head of dairy cows.

Edgar's story

Edgar comes from a large family comprised of seven siblings. Most of them started to leave when they were very young, even migrating to Argentina, in search of better living conditions. As he was the oldest brother left, he started when he was very little to help his father with the farming and the dairy cows. Therefore, he did not finish high school.

At his older siblings’ insistence, he even went for a few years to Argentina. However, upon his father’s death he had to return to Bolivia and start a new life with his future wife. Taking advantage of the land he inherited from his father, he decided to work as a farmer and milk producer.

Upon noticing that there is a great demand for this product, he is prepared to invest and devote himself exclusively to this field. However, he needs a little more capital. He will use the loan to buy two head of dairy cows from his brother who wants to sell them because he is traveling.
