A loan of $800 helped to buy five calves.

Jaime's story

Jaime, 50, is married with five children. He’s spent his entire life in the countryside where he learned agriculture and animal husbandry activities from his father. He currently works in agriculture growing peas, beans, potatoes and corn. To earn income he sells his crops in the town square where he lives. In this way he’s succeeded in moving his children and wife forward.

Jaime is a very hardworking, active, driven man who is passionate about his family and his work. He’s always in search of options that will lead to progress. Because of this, he’s requested a loan to buy five calves (cattle-raising) because he wants to alternate cattle-raising with his current agricultural work. He’s already leased a lot to do so.

This will allow him to earn higher income to continue meeting his household needs. He’ll also be able to continue advancing towards reaching his greatest dream which is to buy pasture land to continue with this activity and save what he currently pays to lease it for his businesses. Thus, in the near future he’ll be able to improve his family’s quality of life and to give his children the opportunity of having an excellent education.
