A loan of $1,025 helped working capital.


Presentacion Jesus's story

45-year old Señor Presentación Jesús Álvarez Áreas has four children in his care. Due to his financial situation, not one of the children is in school. He earns his living by butchering pigs and selling pork, a job he has been doing for more than seven years. Beforehand, his mother was in charge of the business, and as time passed she taught her son how to do the work. When she got sick, her son took over the business--its popularity is due to the efforts of his mother. Because of the difficulties that Presentación has faced such as the economic crisis, he is seeking a loan for working capital and to buy corn, masa (corn flour), firewood etc. His greatest dream is to expand and improve his business so that his children can continue this way of life.
