A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more pigs to fatten to sell afterwards at a good price.


José Mauricio's story

José followed his studies until the 2nd grade of primary school. His life partner works in a café and they have 2 children who do not go to school yet.

José makes a living from buying and selling pigs. He decided to make an incursion into this work because of the high demand at the time he sells the pigs. His partner takes part in his business. Additionally, he works as a construction worker.

He will use this loan to purchase more pigs to fatten and then sell at a good price.

José is projected to have a better business breeding and selling animals in the future in order to have a better income and to continue investing.
