A loan of $900 helped to buy two heifers to fatten and resell.


Oscar Eduardo's story

Oscar is 34 years old. He studied up to the eighth form only, because his parents had no means to keep sending him to school, which is why he became a farmer and a merchant. He married a few months ago, and his wife is a domestic worker. Oscar trades in cattle. At first, he partenered up with a friend, but he has been working alone for four years now, where before he was simply a helper. Three months ago, he sold all the cows he had, all his investment, in order to have ready cash for his wedding and to build a small house. He works as a farmer and a bricklayer. He needs to cover great distances to go to buy cattle. His hours vary, but he usually works from 7 am to 6 pm. He asks Credicampo for a loan so as to buy 2 heifers, which he will keep in a pasture for 3 to 6 months and then resell in order to buy others. He is grateful for the opportunity this loan represents. His dream is to have a small animal farm of his own and to make a better life for the children he will soon have. He wants to create jobs for at least one person, in order to mirror the chance he was once given. He will use the profits to buy more cattle.
