A loan of $800 helped to buy a calf.

Samuel's story

Samuel is 77 years old and he studied up to Grade 3. He is married and has two children who have their own homes. His wife does the domestic work and is the only person who is financially dependent on him.

Samuel raises cattle and farms. He also makes carts something he learned from his father and decided to do to make extra money for the education of his children. He also gets financial aid from a grandchild who lives in the USA.

In the summer he keeps the cattle on the plot of land where his house is. The place where he grows corn is one km away. He makes the carts at his house. A grandchild helps him with these activities. His timetable varies.

The loan he is requesting is to buy a calf and pay the rent on the land he farms. This will help him a lot as he can continue to work and have additional financial income. He is happy with the loan as he can have the land he needs to work.

His dreams are to continue working to provide a higher standard of living for his family. (What he wants from his children is that they continue to support him). The profits will be used to pay off the loan to stay in the good books with Credicampo. So then he can continue to work with Credicampo as they will have confidence in him.
