A loan helped to buy another cow as he only has one.

Rene Alonso's story

Rene is a young entrepreneur of 22 years old, he has a middle level of education, he has a partner and a daughter who is one year old, they are the only ones who live in his home and he has no more dependents.

Rene is employed, he occasionally works with the mayor of the municipality as an accountant, he has done this for 2 years but he is also a farmer, a job that he learnt when he was young with his parents and siblings. When he stopped going to school, he devoted himself entirely to farm work but then the opportunity presented itself to work in the town hall so he took it, as he is a young man who takes advantage of opportunities to get ahead.

He is requesting this loan as he needs to purchase another cow, as he only has one but he has more demand from his customers in the sale of milk and cheese and thus he needs to buy one more cow to meet this need.

His dreams are of more milk cows, he hopes to achieve this with a lot of effort as this is his strongest source of income.
