Jose Pedro's story
Jose is 63 years old, single, and lives with his siblings in the countryside. He is characterized as being hard-working and sociable. To support his family, he decided to raise chickens. For 4 months, he cares for them to later sell them, so that he can help with the food and medicine of his family members. It is the only way he can generate an income, so he is asking for a loan to purchase more chickens, ground corn, and vitamins, so he will improve their growth and profitability.
