A loan of $700 helped to buy a cow.


José Osmar's story

José, age 28, is married, and he went to school through the ninth grade. He lives with his wife and their three year old child. José gets up at 5:30 a.m. His wife helps him with the agricultural activities in the morning. He is a farmer, and his parents taught him this work. He walks two kilometers to get to the farm land.

The loan that he is requesting is to buy a cow. This will help to increase milk production to sell and to get additional income in the future. With the income that he gets, José plans to buy more animals.
