A loan of $1,200 helped to buy concentrate for the cattle.

Oscar Joel's story

Oscar is a very recognized person in his community for his good work. He actually lives with his parents and is single. He does not have children or relatives abroad. He works in agriculture doing cattle rearing and cultivating basic grains. He has done this kind of work for 6 years and learned it from his parents. Difficulty exists due to high maintenance costs but also an advantage because he owns the pasture itself.

The loan he is requesting is to buy concentrate for the cattle and with this, he can increase production. This investment will help sustain more profitable business. One of the risks that could happen is a possible disease in cattle.

His dream is to continue working to generate more income, so that in the future he can marry to start his own family. In terms of activity, he hopes that profits from his business will enable him to be self-sufficient.
