Rudy Alberto
Rudy is 21 years old. He is single. This young man engages in two kinds of productive work: the first, but not least important, is raising poultry (broiler chickens). The second is raising livestock such as cows, goats, calves, and bulls. He does both of these on a piece of land attached to his house. This land has everything necessary to raise chickens and cows. In the morning, he cleans the troughs of the chickens and cows. Then he feeds them. Throughout the day, he maintains everything he encounters in perfect condition, since the chickens require a lot of care because they are very delicate birds. He has been doing this work for an average of approximately 3 years. It is also worth mentioning that his mother has done this work for more than 30 years, and it is she who points him in the right direction so everything goes very well for him. Before starting this work, he was studying, but due to financial problems he is no longer pursuing university studies.

He buys the broiler chickens from the providers who specialize in raising chickens. They provide an added service of weekly or bimonthly checks to see how the chickens’ growth is going. He buys these in the city, which is 1 kilometer from his house.

He buys the cows at the small market in the same city that is the same distance away as mentioned previously.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy 300 broiler chickens, 2 milk cows, and 2 calves. The rest of the financing will be used to repair the chain-link fence where the chickens are, since it is in bad shape.

With the loan, he will increase his herd of cattle and raise 300 broiler chickens, since he currently has 300 others that are ready for sale. His inventory will increase on buying all these chickens and therefore his sales will be larger and of course his earnings as well. In this way, he will be able to make other investments he is thinking of.

His goals are: first, he wants to build one more coop to raise the chickens, since the one he currently has is very small and is in pretty bad shape. He also wants to build feed and water troughs for the cattle. And finally, he wants to continue studying for a university degree.

Rudy tiene 21 años de edad, es soltero. Este joven realiza dos actividades productivas; la primera pero no la menos importante es la crianza de aves de corral (pollos de engorde), la segunda es la crianza de ganado como son: vacas, chivas, terneras y toros, estas actividades las ejerce en un terreno que se encuentra anexo a su casa de habitación. Este terreno cuenta con todos las condiciones para la crianza de pollos y ganado bovino, por la mañana limpia los comederos de los pollos y del ganado. Luego les da su alimento, en el trascurso del día, cuida que todo se encuentre en perfectas condiciones ya que los pollos requieren de mucho cuidado ya que son unas aves muy delicadas. Cuenta aproximadamente con un promedio de 3 años de ejercer esta actividad. También cabe mencionar que su mama desde hace mas de 30 años ha ejercido esta actividad y es ella quien lo orienta para que todo le salga muy bien. Antes de dedicarse a esta actividad estaba estudiando; pero por problemas económicos ya no siguió los estudios universitarios.

Los pollos de engorde, los compra a los proveedores de productos que son los especialistas en la crianza de pollos, ellos prestan un servicio agregado que son las revisiones semanales o quincenales para ver cómo va el crecimiento de los pollos. Estos los compran en la ciudad, que se encuentra a una distancia de 1 kilómetro de su casa de habitación.
El ganado bovino es comprado en el tiangue de la misma ciudad que también se encuentra en la misma distancia anteriormente dicha.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 300 pollos de engorde.
2 vacas lecheras, 2 terneras, el resto del financiamiento será invertido en el arreglo de la maya ciclón de donde se encuentran los pollos ya que está en mal estado.

Con el crédito incrementara su hato de ganado y la crianza de 300 pollos de engorde ya que actualmente cuenda con otros 300 que ya están listos para la venta. Al comprar todos estos pollos y el ganado incrementaran sus inventarios y por ende la ventas serán mayores y por supuesto sus ganancias también y de esta manera podrá hacer otras inversiones que tiene pensado.

Sus propósitos, en primer lugar quiere construir una galera más para la crianza de los pollos debido a que la que tiene actualmente es muy pequeña y está bastante en mal estado, también la construcción de comederos y bebederos para el ganado. Y por último quiere seguir estudiando una carrera universitaria.
