A loan of $700 helped to buy cows.


Juan Irene's story

Juan is 46 years old, married, and the father of four school-aged children. With a lot of sacrifice, the oldest of his children attends the university despite the fact that higher education is expensive in his country. He is originally from a municipality situated in the northern part of the department of Chinandega. Twelve years ago, he began a business butchering pigs, and with time, he changed to butchering beef since beef gave him a better profit. His business consists of buying cows and butchering them to sell the meat.

His future goal is in to purchase a stall in the market of his municipality in order to sell his meat in a fixed place and not sell it on the street. Juan is requesting this loan to buy cows since they are expensive.
