A loan of $1,000 helped to buy pigs to fatten and later sell.

Aisa Isabel's story

Aisa was not able to go to school due to his family's economic problems. He is single and has 11 children, of which only 2 depend on him and the rest have their own homes.

Aisa has worked as a ranch hand for 11 years. His boss emigrated to the United States and left him in charge of the livestock and this is how he has gotten a lot of experience in this area.

He also takes care of his own pigs which he sells after a certain time. Previously, he only worked planting basic grains like corn, beans and sorghum. The place where he works is very close to his house and he is there all day long.

The loan will be used to buy pigs to fatten and later sell. His future dreams are to have his own milking cows as the boss had told him that he can take care of the them on the same land. He also wants to improve his home.
