A loan helped to buy some pigs and concentrated feed for them.


Jose Luis's story

José is a 33 year old young man. He is married and has three children. He lives with his family in the municipality of Tocoa, Colón. For six years he has been raising and selling pigs. He sells them whole or butchered by the pound to neighbours in the community he lives in. He previously earned his living as a bricklayer.

José is requesting a loan of 15,000 Lempiras to invest in the purchase of some pigs and concentrated feed for them. His dream is to obtain more earnings to expand his swine herd and help his family.
