A loan helped to buy more pigs, vitamins, and feed.


Juan Carlos's story

Juan is 37 years old. He is single and is known to be hard-working and sociable. For the last 8 years, he has raised pigs half of the time and worked as a mason the other half of the time. He manages to bring some money home to his family this way.

However, he has observed that his business raising pigs has been more profitable. This is why he is requesting the help of a loan to buy more pigs, vitamins, and feed in order to generate more profit for his household. This way he can provide his 17-year-old son Carlos with a good education, and see his dream of having his own house gradually come true.
