Miguel Angel
Miguel Ángel is 23 years old. He lives with his wife and his 4-year-old son in his wife's parents' house. The house is located in the village of Vallecito, 35 kilometers away from the city of Monteagudo. They grow corn and also raise breeding pigs. From both these businesses they obtain profits in order to pay for their clothing, food, housing and other expenses. They're requesting a loan to purchase balanced feed for the piglets and the sows who are currently gestating. The piglets are for fattening and selling at the end of the year, since prices are very favorable during this time of the year. Miguel Ángel's biggest wish is to increase his profits so that he can acquire his own plot of land for farming and also build a little house of his own. Therefore he'll be able to improve his wife's and his son's living conditions.
