A loan of $775 helped buy pigs.


Mario Santiago's story

Mario Santiago, 29, is single and does not have children. He butchers pigs. He also sells pigs from his house. He started this business eight years ago. At first he sold pork. He was investing until he was able to have his own business without having to buy from another person. He has always worked very hard in order to get ahead.

The loan is to buy five pigs, which will improve his sales and increase his working capital. His goal is to have a butcher shop that will increase his sales and help to improve the general quality of life for him and his family.
