Henry Alonso's story

Henry is a proud rancher who worked as a farm administrator for several years, until he had the opportunity to fulfill a long-standing ambition and study construction. He then moved to the city and began school.

After completing his studies, Henry returned home, where he works in construction but also has a business buying and selling livestock. Henry is able to balance his livestock business with meeting the responsibilities of his construction contracts. He is now building his own home and is extremely proud to say that he's paying for the construction with his own resources and doing the work with his own two hands, all in order to benefit his family. The construction, however, is expensive, so Henry is applying for a loan so that he can purchase three cattle to boost his livestock business and keep striving finish the home and fulfill his dream. This loan will not only put Henry closer to his goal of finishing the house, but also go far towards establishing his reputation as a buyer and seller of livestock.
