Rene's story

Rene is 56 years old, married and has three children who all live together in their home. Rene works raising cattle. He gets up very early to take the animals from their corral, and then he feeds them before he leads them to the fields. He has been raising cattle for 11 years and he began raising his own about 6 years ago. The good thing is what he can gain some money as the care taker of these fields and also be able to watch over his herd. His wife helps him in his work and she is always there to support him. What he likes about his job is the peacefulness and getting to watch the animals grow while they are under his care. This is his sixth credit with Kiva and he is applying again in order to see his plans through. He also promises once again to be punctual in his repayments. With the loan he will purchase organic fertilizer.
