José Antonio's story

José is 36 years old and only studied until Grade 2. He is married and his wife does the housework. They have 3 children from this relationship. José has been farming since he was 15. His father taught him how as he wanted him to learn as in the future it would be useful. His father taught him to stay on the right path and how to take care of himself.

His plot is located 15 minutes away from his house and he walks there. He also raises cattle as he bought cows to sell milk and fresh cheese. The loan José is requesting is to buy a milk cow. He wants to take advantage of this as it is convenient and he knows the cow and knows that it is a good milk producer. This will help him a lot as he can only obtain his animals through the loans. The cow will generate a lot of income as he doesn't only have farming but also milk. His dream is that he can always work the earth, support his household and have his animals generate income. He wants to have all milk cows.
