A loan of $525 helped to buy two calves to fatten up.

Irvin Sadrac's story

Irvin is 23 years old. Unfortunately, he was not able to attend university due to his family's economic situation. He has a live-in partner. He has no children, and his partner dedicates herself to being a homemaker. Only the two of them live in their house.

For 10 years, he has worked as a day laborer in agriculture and ranching. He buys and sells livestock. He learned all of this on his own initiative. He gets up at 4 in the morning to go to his employer's property. He walks 5 kilometers, and his work day ends at 1 in the afternoon.

The loan will be used to buy two calves to fatten up. He will sell them a few months later, hoping to make a good profit and to repeat the process.

He wants to become known as a livestock merchant, become independent, have his own businesses, have children, and give them the opportunity to study that he did not have.
