José Ezequiel
José is 34 years old, married, and has two children. He is a hard-working person who lives with his wife and two children. José works as a farmer and also carries out additional work to make income for his family. For the past four years, he has been raising chickens for meat. It all started with the idea of marrying the woman who is now his wife. The couple decided to save some money on their wedding by purchasing 70 chickens to fatten themselves and, without knowing anything about the amount of time it takes a chicken to grow, they did this. They had to sell the 70 chickens because they developed before their wedding date. This is how they started their business. The couple buy the supplies they need such as concentrated feed, vitamins and vaccines in Sensuntepeque because it is the only place where customers receive a good price and technical advice. To reach this place, José has to travel 5km by bus or pick-up truck.

José is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo to buy four 100lb bags of concentrate to feed a batch of chickens. He will use the remaining money to buy farm supplies.

José's future plans are to build a shed where he can raise more chickens and provide them with better conditions. This will make him more money and he will be able to both satisfy his family's needs and cover his demand for chickens.

José tiene 34 años de edad, es casado y tiene dos hijos. Es una persona trabajadora que vive con su esposa y sus 2 hijos. Se dedica a la agricultura y otras labores que generen ingresos para su familia. Pero desde hace 4 años se dedica a la crianza de pollos de engorde, todo comenzó con la idea de realizar su boda con la persona que hoy es su esposa, pensaron en ahorrar un dinero comprando 70 pollos de engorde y sin saber nada del tiempo que tardaba en desarrollarse el pollo lo hicieron. Y tuvieron que vender los 70 pollos por que se engordaron antes de la fecha de su boda. Y es así como iniciaron su negocio.
Los insumos como concentrados, vitaminas y vacunas los compra en el Municipio; porque es el único lugar donde el cliente obtiene buen precio y tiene asesoría técnica para su producción. Para llegar a este lugar tiene que viajar una distancia de 5 kilómetros en autobús o en pick-up.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 4 quintales de concentrado para iniciar el desarrollo de un lote de pollos y la otra parte para comprar insumos agrícolas.

Sus planes a futuro es tener una galera donde pueda desarrollar mas pollos y darles mantenimiento en mejores condiciones para lograr mayores rendimientos económicos y así poder satisfacer las necesidades de su familia y cubrir la demanda de los pollos.
