Félix
Felix is 26 years old, is single and lives with his parents.

Eight months ago he began the installation of a farm with five pigs and when they are grown he butchers them. He decided to continue the work of his father who is now in a wheelchair and can't do it. Prior to this, Felix had a bakery, but he decided to other things that would help him to improve his income.

He bought the pigs when they were 5 weeks old, in a city that is two hours away from where lives. He bought the concentrate, food and vitamins in the same place and he sells the meat in a city that is two hours away from his house. He has strong clientel and he supplies the city's sellers with meat.

Felix asks for a loan from Fundación Campo to buy sheet metal, cement, sand, iron and bricks to construct another pigsty. This way he will be able to raise more pigs so that when they are young he can keep them in one pigsty and when they are at the stage to be butchered he can transfer them to another. As the pigs keep growing he will categorize them by pigsty. With this investment his production will be greater and he will recieve better income. Felix notes that he is 100% dedicated to seeing his business grow more.

Félix tiene 26 años de edad, es soltero y vive con sus padres.

Hace ocho meses el inicio con la instalación de una granja con cinco cerdos y cuando ya están listos los destaza. Él decidió continuar con el trabajo de su papá ya que él esta en silla de ruedas y no puede hacerlo. Antes Félix tenía una panadería, pero decidió realizar otras actividades que le ayuden a mejorar sus ingresos.

Los cerdos los compra de cinco semanas de nacidos, en una ciudad que esta a dos horas del lugar donde vive, el concentrado, alimentos y las vitaminas las compra en el mismo lugar y comercializa la carne de estos en una ciudad que esta a dos horas de su casa. Él tiene buena clientela, les abastece a las vendedoras de carne de una ciudad.

Félix solicita un préstamo a Fundación Campo para comprar láminas, cemento, arena, hierro y bloques para construir una galera más. Así él podrá criar más cantidad de cerdos ya que cuando están pequeños los tiene en una galera cuando están en la etapa para ser destazados los traslada a otra, es decir conforme van creciendo los cerdos así él los clasifica en una galera. Con esa inversión su producción será mayor y recibirá mejores ingresos, Félix comenta que se dedicara al 100% a este negocio para que crezca más.
