Jose Maria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy materials to build pens, such as wood, cement, bars, zinc roofing, and sand, as well as chickens, feed, and pigs.


Jose Maria's story

José, who is 58 years old, lives in the municipality of Chinu with his family. This is a loan with the risk of default because of the high incidence of armed violence that the area where he now lives suffered in the past.

He works in raising and selling small animals such as pigs, with more than five years of experience in this work.

He is applying for a loan to invest in the purchase of materials for the construction of pens, such as wood, cement, bars, zinc roofing, and sand, as well as chickens, feed, and pigs. In this way [he hopes] to make his business grow more and to be able to improve his quality of life.
