A loan helped to buy pig feed, expand his pens, and buy pigs.

Jaime Luis's story

Jaime is 62 years old and married. He was born and raised in a humble family, where he learned to work and to fend for himself.

Thanks to the experience and knowledge he acquired, now he has his own business raising pigs. With his winning attitude, commitment, and dedication, he has managed to succeed. The income that he earns from his work has permitted him to provide for the daily needs of his household.

Now he requests a loan, intending to invest it in the purchase of feed for pigs, expansion of his pens, and purchase of pigs. Jaime dreams of expanding his business to increase his income and give his family better economic stability.
