A loan of $1,325 helped to buy agricultural inputs (compost and fertilizers) necessary to fertilize the grass where the cattle feed.


Juan José's story

Juan, at 25 years of age, is the single father of a 6-year old son. He has lived his whole life in the countryside, where he learned all the tasks related to agriculture and livestock, thanks to his father's teachings. Now he makes his living raising cattle for milk production, and the milk that he gets is sold in the market. In this way, he generates the necessary income to cover the basic needs of his home.

The client is a sensible, disciplined and hardworking man. In spite of adversities, he always looks for options that allow him to get ahead. This is why he is applying for a loan to invest in the purchase of agricultural inputs (compost and fertilizers) necessary to fertilize the grass where the cattle feed. In this way, he will be able to help himself so that the cattle are well fed and can increase their milk production. He will thus have the opportunity to increase his sales and receive better earnings. With this, he would like to give his son an excellent education and to continue providing for his family so that in the near future they can enjoy better conditions and quality of life.
