A loan helped to buy cattle and to stock his wife's business.

José Oscar's story

José is 48 years old and due to a lack of economic resources only studied until Grade 3. His partner sells at the canteen of a school. He has three children, two of them live with him and they are the only people who are dependent on him.

José works in agriculture and raises cattle, work that he learned from his father. His two children help him and he has no set timetable. He travels 3 km by bicycle to get to his cornfield.

The money from the loan will be used to buy cattle and to stock his wife's canteen more so that they will have more revenues. José's dream is to have a store in their house so that his wife doesn't have to go out and to help his children anyway he can. He knows that it will be difficult but with the help of God and the loans it is possible for him to achieve this.
