A loan of $1,600 helped to buy a team of oxen needed to plow the land he cultivates.


Luís Alonso's story

Luis is 48 years old, has a life companion, and studied until the ninth grade. He gets up at 5:00AM with his wife and children who attend school and depend on the work he does. Luis works in the agriculture business which he learned from his parents. He walks 1.5 kilometers to the fields and works in the morning. His wife takes care of domestic chores and cares for the cows he owns. The loan he is applying for from Fundación is to buy a team of oxen needed to plow the land he cultivates in order to obtain additional income, and to plow other fields which will help support his family. Luis plans to construct a decent home for his family in the future as currently he lives in an adobe house.
