Pablo Emilio's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy 150 laying hens, 150 fattened chickens, extract to feed the animals, and agricultural supplies (manures, pesticides, fertilizers, fungicides) to grow his avocados.
Pablo Emilio's story
Pablo, a 33 year old farmer, is married and the father of a 7 year old son. From a young age, he learned to perform farm work from his father. He currently has 100 avocado plants, 100 laying hens, and 30 fattened chickens. His products are sold in the market for laying hens in the town where he lives. He also owns a small glass factory. Both activities make up Pablo's source of income to support his family. Pablo hopes to invest the loan he is applying for to strengthen his agricultural business. He will buy 150 laying hens, 150 fattened chickens, extract to feed the animals, and agricultural supplies (manures, pesticides, fertilizers, fungicides) to grow his avocados. This will allow him to increase his production ability and sales and to improve his income. He will also be able to face the diverse challenges he is faced with, such as the high costs of agricultural supplies which he sometimes does not make back with the sale of his products. Pablo says that his project is to continue strengthening his two activities to generate a greater profitability that will guarantee a favorable stable economy and in that way be able to offer his son a quality education and improve his family’s quality of life.
