A loan of $2,625 helped buy buy more cattle to raise and milk.

José Eliécer's story

Jose, 35, lives in the country and has worked the land all his life through agriculture and cattle-raising. He learned these skills from his family when he was a child and adolescent. Currently, he works on a parcel of land in the town where he lives. There, he does a variety of work and independently raises cattle. What he produces is sold so he can complement the income from his current job. Jose is thriving, active and dynamic. His persistence and positive attitude motivate him to seek new alternatives to keep advancing.

For this reason, Jose is requesting a loan to buy more cattle to raise and milk. This will allow him to increase production and offer more products for sale. He will be able to complement his income with the income he makes for household expenses. Jose dreams of starting his own hydrangea crop in order to move into another commercial crop and, therefore, have a more successful business. This is important because his family's well-being and economic stability depends on him.
