A loan of $2,650 helped to buy two milk-producing cows.


Elkin Eladio's story

Elkin, 42, is separated and the father of a 10-year-old son. He has spent his working life in agriculture, thanks to his parents' training. He owns milk cows, and he sells the milk they produce in the local market. The income this generates pays for his son's and his family's basic needs and his employee's wage. Elkin is prudent, hard working, and vigorous. He strives to provide for his son, and he has applied for a loan to buy two milk-producing cows so that he can keep his business going, increase production, and earn more. This will help him realize his dream of owning different cattle breeds, not just milk cows, by acquiring breeding stock. He will have more business opportunities and improved profit margins, which will allow him to offer his son a better education and to have a stable financial situation.
