A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a pair of young bulls.

Rene Alonso's story

Rene is 21 years old. He finished secondary school. He has a live-in partner, and he has a 3-month-old daughter whom his partner takes care of.

Rene is a farmer, a profession he learned from his father when he was a child. When he left school, he dedicated himself full-time to agricultural work. Rene also occasionally works for the local government in his community.

The loan will be used to buy a pair of young bulls, in order to work with them as oxen next year. In this way, he will not have to pay someone to plow the fields for him.

Rene plans to have everything he needs to work the soil. He comments that he still needs a wagon and a few other things. He also wants his children to finish their education.
