A loan of $1,125 helped to acquire cattle and increase milk production.

Luis Alcides's story

Luis has grown his business thanks to the support that Fundación Alternativa has given him. He has worked with this field partner for 9 months and the personalized attention that they give him suits him well. Additionally, it helps him to get tools that facilitate the administration of his business.

In spite of living 4 hours from the main road, Luis has arranged to be able to go to town to distribute the milk that his cows produce.

He sold the last cows he got in the local market and now he needs a loan to get new cows, and thus increase milk production. Luis invests 12 hours in his work, from 5 a.m. until about 5 p.m. Although he doesn’t have help, he enjoys this job of his that he learned as a child.

Luis hopes to always keep his estate safe so that his children don’t suffer from being needy.
