A loan of $7,800 helped to buy dairy cattle.

Francisco Javier's story

Francisco is a farmer, age 44. He is married and is the father of two children, ages 2 and 13.

Francisco currently works as a contract worker in a company, and he also manages his father-in-law’s business, which consists of dairy production. He learned this work from his parents, who taught him farming skills from a young age; it was the only way of life at that point in time. In this way, he subsidizes his income in order to have enough to get his family ahead.

His goal is to have his own dairy business, so he can supplement his income in this way and face his main challenge, which is the instability of his current job. In order to do this, he is asking for the support of a loan, with which he will buy dairy cattle. Then he can move a little closer to his goals and improve his income.

Francisco, with the humility and honor that are typical of him, shares that he dreams of owning his own home, where he can enjoy a better quality of life in the company of his family. He also wants to fight to keep giving his children a high-quality education.
