A loan of $1,000 helped to buy pigs to raise.

Jorge's story

Jorge Madrigal is 52 years old, married, and lives with his grandson and his wife. With the loan he intends to purchase some pigs to raise and furthermore make use of it to buy feed for the sustenance of these same pigs. He counts on the housing and the birth of more pigs to raise, and he already has two sows who are already fattened up. He wants to buy two more in order to produce more pigs to later sell them in the local market or in the surrounding area. He wants to generate the greatest amount of earnings for his well-being and that of his family, and to grow with his project of raising pigs. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He hadn't had other loans from state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
