A loan of $700 helped to pay the lease for his farmland and to purchase a milk cow.

Levy William's story

Levy is 37 years old. His parents had few resources, and because of this he was only able to stay in school through sixth grade. His wife works in agriculture and does housework. He has 4 children, and some of them study in the community's school.

Levy works in agriculture and raising cattle. He learned this when he was very young; currently, he cultivates 2 hectares of corn in the winter season. Very early every day, he goes to his workplace about one kilometer from his house. He works until noon; later, he goes to the place where he has his cattle to care for them. At times, his wife helps him with the farmwork, which saves them paying for a worker.

The loan will be used to pay for the lease of his farmland, and also to purchase a milk cow in order to have another income for his family.

He hopes that in the future, his children will be able to study and reach a good level of education so that they can have better work opportunities, and that he will continue working to obtain better earnings.
