A loan helped to buy woven cane, pigs, and maintain his farm.


Erinaldo Antonio's story

31-year old Erinaldo lives with his partner and son in the municipality of San Antonio de Palmito. He was born into and grew up in a humble family where he learned how to work and to fend for himself. Thanks to the experience and knowledge that he gained, today he has his own business raising pigs. With his positive attitude, his hard work and dedication, Erinaldo has managed to get ahead. The income he earns comes from sales of the products he makes and allows him to provide for his family on a daily basis.

Now Erinaldo is seeking a loan for the purpose of buying woven cane, pigs, and maintaining his farm. His greatest wish is to expand his business in order to increase his income and provide his family with satisfactory financial stability so that they can improve their standard of living and provide their son with an excellent education.
