Josué Edgardo's story

Josué studied through his high school diploma. He's single, and lives with his mother.

Josué has worked raising and selling pigs for a year, and he learned from his brother. He walks a half-kilometer from his house to the pig corral, and he spends 3 hours a day caring for and feeding them.

Additionally, he works in agriculture.

Josué needs the loan to buy 6 pigs and concentrated feed for fattening them to sell later.

Josué dreams of having a large pig farm, and also, he would like to study at university to specialize in livestock studies.
