A loan of $1,200 helps to buy pigs, potatoes, pig feed, whey, and veterinary supplies.


Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos, 19, is an unassuming person who has limited financial resources. This is why he attended school, and from the time he was an adolescent he started working as a dayworker. His house is located in the community of Fernandez Salvador. He lives here with his mother, siblings, and nephews.

In order to generate income, Carlos works raising and selling pigs. This allows him to help his parents with the necessities. Carlos wants to give his business a boost by getting a loan to buy pigs, potatoes, pig feed, whey, and veterinary supplies. This way, he will be able to work better and have faster turnover of his livestock so that he can generate earnings more rapidly.

Carlos aspires to continue to grow so that he can invest in agriculture, because this is the way he knows to make a living.
