Jorge Adalberto
Jorge is 45 years old. He studied only through the first grade. He is married, and his wife dedicates herself to the domestic chores and also works butchering pigs. Together they have five children, who live in their home. Four of them go to school, and one helps them with the chores at home. Thus these are the people who depend on Jorge.

He works butchering pigs. He has done this work for two years. Earlier, he only bought and sold the pigs, but a friend taught him how to butcher them. He also does agricultural work in his free time, when the sale of pork is steady. He cultivates corn and beans.

The loan he is requesting from the Campo Foundation is to buy more pigs to butcher, and he will also buy chickens to fatten up. He is planning for the Christmas season, when they will be ready to butcher and he will be able to sell them. With the loan he will obtain more earnings for his family and thus get ahead.

His dreams are to have a pig and poultry farm, to sell the animals when they are grown, or to sell them to customers who want to buy them when they are small. In this way he would be able to provide jobs to friends who do not have work, because if they go out to sell the meat, that would be a source of income for other families.
