Irvin Alexis's story

Irvin is a hardworking, friendly and charismatic young man who lives with his parents and a sister. Irvin is a bachelor and hasn't found a stable job. In order to support his household with certain necessities, he started a business raising and selling pigs. He does this job with the help of his mother, who has some experience in this field.

Irvin wants to expand his business, so is seeking a loan to buy pigs, commercial feed, whey and potatoes. This will allow him to continue working in some way, in order to be independent and to start to do things for his life.
