A loan of $2,675 helped buy two milk cows.


Armando's story

Armando has lived his whole life in the countryside. He met his wife there and they have two children. He has always struggled to make ends meet as what he earned wasn't sufficient to cover all his monthly expenses.

A few years ago he became a dairy farmer, starting out with just one cow. As time passed and with the help of loans, he managed to grow his business and become an important milk producer in the area. Now Armando wishes to expand and begin farming as he needs much money to provide his children with a good education. They want to study courses related to the care of animals as they have learned from their father to love animals.

The loan Armando is seeking is to buy two milk cows. He expects them to produce enough milk and profits after one year for him to be able to buy a parcel of land and begin to farm it.
