Nardino Aminadab's story

Nardino, 26 years old, was able to complete high school. He decided to travel to the United States to work and obtain some assets. Afterwards, he returned to his country. His life partner works as a nurse and they have a ten-month-old daughter.

Nardino cultivates 14,000 square meters of corn. His father, who also works in agriculture, taught him this activity. He’s done this since he was little because he studied at the same time as he worked with his father. Then, he worked in the cattle business. A friend, who he currently works with in the market, taught him this activity. He is also involved in raising and fattening chickens and in breeding cattle for grazing. When working in agriculture, he has to wake up early since his crops are 2 kilometers from his house. He also milks 2 cows before he heads out.

This loan will be used to buy a milk cow, 300 chickens to fatten, and chicken feed. In the future, Nardino hopes to have his own house where he can live with his family and be able to expand his chicken pen so he can raise more. He also hopes to keep studying so he can complete a university degree.
