A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a cow and a bull.


Jorge Eliecer's story

Jorge is a humble, strong, and hardworking farmer. He earns his living doing farm work, especially in raising livestock. He learned to farm through the lessons his family gave him. It's a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Furthermore, he has an additional job working in a pottery shop in the region. He does this work to supplement his income and pay household expenses for his family which consists of his wife and 4 children.

In an effort to strengthen his business, he is requesting a loan to buy a cow to raise and a male breeding cow (bull). This will allow him to increase production in the medium-term, achieving better income with his work. Jorge, 53, says that his greatest desire is to have a minimum of 12 breeding cows working a dual-purpose production, producing milk and meat and to also achieve greater profitability so he can provide a good education to his children and enjoy better quality living conditions with them.
