Vicente's story

Vicente studied through 6th grade in school, is married and his spouse is a housewife. He has five children who depend on him and are in school.

Vicente makes a living by raising and selling hens and chickens. He has 15 years of experience doing this work and he learned it from his mother. His work day is from 7:00 in the morning to 6:00 in the afternoon.

He needs a loan to purchase concentrated feed for the hens and chickens. It will also be used to purchase metal mesh to expand the pen where he takes care of the animals.
