Luis Eduardo's story

Luis is a humble, 43-year-old, single man. He lives in the sector known as El Playón de San Francisco with his parents, who work in agriculture.

When he was young, Luis acquired an interest in working in the fields, and that is why he works in agriculture and raising animals. He earns the necessary income from this work to cover his household expenses and give his child everything he needs. Although he does not live with his child, Luis takes care of him and looks out for his well-being.

Luis wants to continue boosting his work of raising pigs, so he is requesting help to purchase pigs, balanced feed, whey, vitamins, potatoes, and fattening feed. This way he will be able to raise and care for his animals better.
