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

Juan's story

Juan is 52 years old and works raising and selling cattle. He sells his cattle in the community of Batallas. This loan is his first cycle with the field partner. He is going to use the loan to buy cattle, because he says that at the moment there is a lot of demand for them.

Some of the challenges that Juan faces in his business are the climate and also the need to transport the cattle to the different points of sale. But Juan says he has many customers because he treats his customers well. He is going to use the profits he makes to buy fodder, which he needs to buy every so often to improve his cattle’s nutrition.

Juan’s wish is for his business to be stable and profitable so that his income would increase.
