A loan helped buy pigs.
Juan Carlos's story
Carlos is a Colombian man who's lived in Ecuador for seven years. He works as a bricklayer, as a day laborer or on whatever job he can find. He says he left his home country in search of work and, above all, a quiet life and a better future for his family; he found both in Ecuador. He is married and has two children who are in school. His wife works as a domestic employee. Carlos is grateful to FODEMI for giving him his first loan three years ago to start his business selling pigs. This loan will also be used to buy pigs. Carlos hopes to improve his business and ultimately his income so that eventually he can buy a small lot where he can raise more animals.
