Jose Luis's story
José is a hardworking, happily married man who lives with his wife in the south of the city. She raises animals while José works as a mason. José wants to boost his pig raising business which provides a good income for his humble home. He requires help in the form of a loan to purchase feed, vitamins, and a farrowing sow. That way, he expects his herd to increase and fetch a good price at market. At his advanced age, he is getting less masonry work and it does not provide sufficient income.
