A loan of $2,600 helped to buy two milk cows.

Luis Alfonso's story

Luis, 34, is a farmer who has spent his working life in the dairy business. He initially worked for some dairy companies but took the chance to go out on his own and earn money for himself. He now has 12 dairy cows, and he sells the milk daily to one of the country's largest dairy businesses. He is able to earn enough money to provide for his family, which comprises his wife and two children. His effort, tenacity, and dedication have allowed him to prosper and overcome the biggest challenges life presented, especially during times when supplies to take care of his livestock were very expensive.

He has applied for a loan to buy two milk cows to increase his herd. This will let him produce more milk to sell and increase his daily earnings. Luis wants to keep striving to achieve his goals and dreams, especially to have a minimum of 20 cows so that he use all the available space on the farm he rents. His business would then be more profitable, and he would be able to offer his family greater financial stability, greater well being, and a better standard of living.
