A loan of $1,450 helped to buy cows.

Eugenio's story

Eugenio and his wife, Dominga, are 41 and 36 respectively, and have been living together for over 10 years. They are economically independent and both work in agriculture. Eugenio sows a plot of 5 hectares, land which was passed down from his parents. He has experience of growing potatoes, "papalizas" (a sort of tuber) and beans, which he crop-rotates. In addition, he has some cattle: 4 animals for fattening and 3 dairy cows.

He currently needs a loan to buy cows (1 pair), since he invested his savings into buying fattening animals and dairy cows. This would be good opportunity to increase his assets.
