Jose De La Paz
Jose, age 54, has two children, and he lives in a village in the Santa Cruz de Yojoa municipality.

Jose is a farmer, and he likes raising livestock. For four years he has been growing “malanga” (a type of vegetable) and raising pigs to sell. He sells the pigs as much as the vegetables at the local market. Both of these business activities leave him with good income.

He is requesting a loan for 13,000 lempiras to buy concentrate, which is the food for the pigs that makes them grow rapidly. He will use part of the loan for the maintenance of his malanga crop to be able to have good production.

His goal is to generate good income in order to be able to finish his house and live more comfortably with his family.
