A loan of $3,900 helped to buy 8 head of cattle to develop a sustainable farming ecosystem.


Alejandro's story

Alejandro (middle) is a young farmer, 22 years old, who lives in a rural community in one of the poorest states of Mexico. With the help of his father Santos (left), and his brother Julio César (right), he will use the loan to buy 8 head of cattle, fatten them and sell them to increase the household income. The family has been working with a NGO to obtain the technical expertise and built the necessary infrastructure to develop a silvopasture system. With this project, Alejandro will develop a more sustainable cattle-raising method through a silvopasture system. In addition, he will improve the living conditions of his family, and contribute to the conservation of an area of high environmental value. His goal is to save money, obtain the technical knowledge, and in the future have his own butcher´s shop where he can sell the meat from his cattle.
