Gilberto Antonio's story

Gilberto did not have the opportunity to attend school. He has a partner who is a housewife. He has two children who depend on him.

Gilberto has had a metal structures workshop for 10 years and learned the trade thanks to a friend of his. The workshop is located in his home and in this way he earns income for the welfare of his family.

He has decided to start a new business and he will use the loan to buy 200 chickens and concentrated feed to fatten them and then sell them. In addition, he will buy materials to build the pen to raise the animals.

Gilberto dreams of having a farm with many chickens and also wants his children to succeed.
