A loan helped to buy materials to expand and modify pig farming.

Yeison's story

Yeison, 28, is a hardworking and humble farmer. He works to meet the basic expenses of his family.

For 4 years he has been engaged in the business of livestock farming, an activity he learnt by family inheritance and that has permitted him to earn resources to move forward in the municipality of Puerto Parra.

He is currently seeking a loan with which he wishes to buy materials to expand and modify pig farming, and thus be able to have a better production that allows him to generate a greater level of profitability when selling.
