A loan of $1,400 helped to buy four steers for fattening.

Daniel Antonio's story

Daniel is a enterprising young man who is 24 years of age. He lives with his partner, who is a housewife and takes care of their four-year-old daughter.

Don Daniel decided to learn the trade of raising and fattening cattle by grazing. He also pursues other productive activities such as growing pumpkins and corn, buying and selling milk and other dairy products, and maintaining a press for drying cheese. His workday begins at 5:30 A.M. when he buys the milk from neighbors in his community who own dairy cows. To complete the process, he travels in his vehicle to the city so that he can sell the milk to wholesale vendors, but he sets aside a certain amount that he can process at home.

When he purchases steers for fattening, he travels by truck to the community of El Tiangue, which is a 45 minute trip. When he arrives, he inspects the animals with great care so that he can choose the best ones. Once he makes his purchase, it can take him up to half a day for him to return home.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo will be used to buy four steers for fattening. This will enable him to increase his herd of cattle, which will be a great benefit because he can continue to make more sales. As a result, his earnings will increase and he can continue working.

Daniel is confident that he will earn more income since he is able to put in a lot more hours into his work. This will enable him to support his family by providing for all of their basic needs and establishing some savings so that they can build a house. They currently live in someone else's home.
