A loan of $700 helped to buy 2 calves.


José David's story

Jose, 67, attended school through the first year of high school. He is married, and has 3 children who are all now independent. His wife is a homemaker.

Jose has 50 years of experience working in agriculture. He learned everything he knows from his father. Every day, he gets up at 5am to go to work on his farm, and he returns around 1pm. He also raises and sells livestock.

He will use this loan to buy 2 calves that he will fatten with the by-products of his corn harvest and sell in 4 months.

He wants to continue to repeat this routine, as he has already bought cattle to fatten and sell for a number of years, and this has provided him with 4 dairy cows. He plans to continue to work so that he can leave his farm to his children.
