A loan of $950 helped to buy posts, staples, barbed wire, and cement to repair fences.


Armando De Jesus's story

Armando de Jesús is a 68-year-old man who has worked in agriculture and with livestock since he was very young. This work has allowed him to educate his seven children, who also help with some of the labor-intensive farm work. Armando's wife also works on the farm and together they work very hard to maintain the inheritance they will leave their children. Armando is requesting his third loan, which he will use to make improvements to his farm, such as repairing fences, which will make his cattle herd more secure. He needs to buy posts, staples, barbed wire, and cement to make the base for the posts.
