Juan is a responsible and very hardworking person. He has a wife and 4 children with whom he lives in Latacunga, Sierra Centro, Ecuador.

Juan works in raising pigs and in agriculture. He began working as a child, as his parents taught him to be responsible from a young age. With the loan from Fodemi, Juan has been able to invest in the purchase of litters of pigs which he will raise, fatten and later sell. This is an investment that in the future will generate a profit for him and very good earnings, which will help him to purchase medicine, as his health is somewhat poor.

He hopes to one day have some pens for his pigs so they aren't running loose and more apt to be stolen. He also hopes to increase the number of animals he has so he can earn more and thereby improve his family's quality of life.
