Jorge
Jorge, 47, has been married to his wife, Martha, for 29 years. They have 7 children and four of them still depend on them, two girls and two boys. A 13-year-old and a 6-year-old girl and a 10-year-old and the youngest, a 4-year-old boy who is the only one not yet in school; the other three are in school.

He has been raising livestock for the last 22 years. He raises sheep to sell and he currently has 22 lambs in his corral but he plans to sell and if he sells them he’ll be left with practically none so he’s asking for a loan to buy ten more lambs. He won’t buy any feed because he’ll use money he’ll get from the sale of the other lambs to buy the feed. For the moment, he hasn’t had nor does he now have any problems because if they get sick he takes them to the veterinarian and they get well that way.

His goal is that his lambs grow so that profits will come from them to cover household expenses since he’d like it if his children became great professionals. “Thanks for the loan because for me it’s of great help and the trust you place in us. I am going to see to it that my lambs grow so as not to disappoint you.”
