A loan of $1,000 helped to buy two dairy cows.

Jesús's story

Jesus is 66 years old and has three adult children with families of their own. [Jesus] was only able to study to sixth grade. He is a widower and his wife died several years ago.

Jesus taught him to be a farmer when he was very young, so that he could help generate income for the family. Now he gets up every morning at 5:00 am to get ready to go work his land and returns home after four hours.

He will use the money from this loan to buy two dairy cows and take advantage of his residual harvest to feed them and obtain milk to drink and sell. If all goes well, he hopes to be able to buy two more cows and increase production soon.
