A loan of $800 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Luis Fernando's story

Luis is a rural resident who is 65 years old. From the time he was a boy, Luis has been involved in agricultural work since he helped his father with the tasks around the farm. He learned everything about caring for animals, especially dairy cows. Thanks to this experience, he started his own business of producing and selling milk in 1997. Luis works alone and his main customers are his neighbors in the area where he lives. Due to low milk prices, his business went bankrupt and he had to sell his cows. Going through several financial crises has also affected his family.

Nonetheless, his drive and tenacity led him to request the support of this loan, which will provide the money to buy a milk-producing cow. Luis wants to restart his business so that he can support his family, which consists of his wife and their only child. Having this opportunity will enable him to continue striving for the welfare of those he loves. He will also have the opportunity to fulfill his dream of creating a large and profitable business. As a result, Luis will have the option to improve financially and to provide better living conditions as much as God and his body will allow.
