Wilian Alexander
Wilian is 38 years old and lives with his life partner and two children. He has worked raising chickens for ten years. He began helping a neighbor who was doing this work. Then his neighbor gave him 50 chickens on credit so he could fatten them and sell them by the pound. Later he got together with his mother and they bought more than 100 chickens, quartered them, and sold them.

Currently Wilian is raising chickens every six weeks, which are the days of production. He sells 500 pounds already delivered. He has his customers, among whom he supplies a hotel and stores in various communities. He buys 110 chickens in a city that is 56 miles from where he lives, and manages to get 100 five-pound chickens. To buy the chickens he has to leave the house at 6:00 a.m., walk three-and-a-half kilometers, and board a vehicle that drives him to the city where he buys the chickens. He buys them once a week along with the feed to feed them. During farming season Wilian works growing basic grains to sell and also works as the assistant of a bricklayer.

Wilian is requesting the loan from Fundación Campo to buy 125 more chickens and feed to feed those he already has and those he will buy, because the demand is growing. Once they reach their weight he quarters them, cleans them, and sells them by the pound. He also will expand the farm for at least 50 more chickens. In this way he will receive greater income, because he will supply all his customers and meet the demand. With this income he will give his family a better quality of life.

He plans to work very hard raising the chickens and work only on this, since this is the work from which he gets the most income. He also wants to construct his own house because he lives in his mother's house. He already has the plot of land; he only needs to build.
