A loan of $1,500 helped to buy cattle and merchandise like sugar, oil, detergent, and beverages for his store.


Mauricio's story

Mauricio, 41, has a life partner. His three children, ages 13, 16, and 20, are in school. He was only able to finish 6th grade. Mauricio sells cattle, which he buys from customers and later sells during the cattle-buying season. He also farms and runs a store, all of which he learned from his grandfather, who pursued the same trades.

He will use this loan to buy cattle to resell and merchandise like sugar, oil, detergent, and beverages for his store. Someday he hopes to buy a new vehicle to transport the animals.
