Antonio has been a hardworking, enterprising man ever since he noticed the significant economic challenges his family has gone through. He is 54 years old and lives in the Muelle de los Bueyes municipality. He dreams of having his own pig farm and doubling his current offering in the next few years. He also wishes to teach his children, who still are in school and know how important it is, to develop this profitable activity. Antonio asks for this loan to buy 7 pigs, which he will fatten for 4 months, giving them a balanced diet that includes corn that he grows on his own farm as part of the agricultural activities that he has developed for a number of years as a way to survive.
