A loan helped to buy chickens for fattening, and their upkeep.

Jose Fernando's story

Fernando, at 51 years of age, works on agricultural jobs since he has a business raising animals. He learned this work from a young age since his parents taught him everything related to the handling and care of animals in the city of Pueblo Rico.

He requests this loan with the desire to buy chickens for fattening, and their upkeep, which will allow him to increase his production. In the end, this will notably increase his income earned from the sales he makes.
