A loan of $1,500 helped to buy cattle.


Luis Alfredo's story

Alfredo is 50 years old and single. He lives with his mother in Chillanes in the Bolivar province in the Santa Rosa de Cerritos community. Alfredo is a member of the San Isidro communal bank in the Santa Rosa de Cerritos community. It is 40 minutes from the head office. The members of this communal bank work in agriculture and raise animals. Alfredo works in agriculture growing corn and beans. He also raises animals like cattle. He is requesting the loan to buy cattle. He will make the purchase in the city of Chillanes. His dream is to have his health in order to continue working and getting a good production. The challenges he faces are pest infestations, diseases, and the lack of capital for work. In his free time he likes to take walks in his town and go to the community celebrations.
