A loan of $525 helped to purchase pigs and feed to raise them.


Jose Alfredo's story

José is 24 years old and lives in a town called Santa Rosa. He lives with his parents and siblings. They are a very close family, humble, but very hardworking.

José only had the opportunity to study through elementary school because his parents weren’t able to let all of their children attend school. José made the decision to help his parents generate more income for the household so his younger siblings wouldn’t have to leave school.

Since a young age, José has worked in agriculture and raising animals. Now he is raising pigs because the work helps him to earn a bit more money to pay for his siblings’ education.

José needs to purchase pigs and feed to continue with his business idea and move forward. He would be very grateful for your help.
