A loan of $825 helped to buy two calves for his cattle raising business.

Jairo Alcides's story

Jairo is 34 years old.

He works raising and selling cattle as a way of supporting his family in the municipality of Rionegro, Colombia. The business of selling livestock insures him of high profits. His biggest challenge has been finding a place to raise them because the rent is so high. He learned this activity by doing it and now has about two years of experience.

He is seeking a loan in order to buy two calves thereby increasing his income and giving his family a better quality of life.

In the near future Jairo wants to have more cattle and offer employment in his area.
