A loan helped to purchase chicken, as well as feed to fatten and sell them.


Elmer Antonio's story

Elmer has a 6th grade education, and has a spouse who looks after their home. He has a daughter, who appears with him in the photo.

Elmer has worked in agriculture since he was sixteen, and has raised chickens for the past three years with the help of his spouse. He needs along in order to purchase chickens, as well as feed for fattening and sale. His earlier loan helped him work, and he paid it off successfully. He dreams of having a well-established chicken farm, and of giving his family a better quality of life.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Aleks Clark.
