A loan of $2,675 helped to buy two dairy cows.

Alejandro's story

Alejandro is 20 years old. He works in a farm as milker, an activity he has learned from his older brother who taught him when Alejandro was young: they live in the country and there this type of job is quite common. He comes from a modest family and the economic situation of his household is difficult. Working as an milker, Alejandro has succeeded in earning an income to provide for the daily necessities of his family. He also owns 2 cows he breeds in a small plot he pays rent for: he daily milks them to sell their milk and earn an additional income. This borrower is a dynamic and resourceful young man, and for this reason he decided to ask for his first loan: he will use it to purchase more dairy cows in order to increase his earnings. He also wants to making his biggest dream come true: owing many dairy cows and make his activity grow in order to keep on economically supporting his household and to improve his family’s standard of living.
