Carlos Gilberto is a 34 year old husband and father or four children. He lives with his family in Santa Bárbara, Honduras. Until about five years ago Carlos had been working in residential construction to support his family, but decided to do start working in livestock raising which he loves to do and is very skilled in doing.  For the past five years he has devoted his life to raising and selling livestock such as milking cows, beef cattle, and horses.

His business has been very profitable and successful in his local community. Carlos has requested a loan to be able to purchase more livestock and improve the quality of the livestock he is raising. He hopes with the increase of quality of the livestock he sells that he will be able to increase his income.

Mission Belt Co has been proud to be able to help Carlos. He has already put the money to good use and has been able to repay the entirety of his loan already. 

Our mission to end world hunger and stop the poverty cycle is only has only been possible through everyone who has purchased a Mission Belt. We have been able to help hundreds of people like Carlos in 56 countries around the world. Help us in continuing our mission by purchasing one of many leather ratchet belts!

Sure, "iron ore cannot be educated into gold" but the Iron Mission Belt is pretty darn close.
