A loan of $1,000 helped to buy meat, pork, and bones.


Victor Alfredo's story

30-year old Victor lives in Primavera de Duran, (a suburban area with a deteriorating ecosystem). He and his wife run a butcher’s shop. When his former job finished, Victor had to think of something else to do so he could support his family. An uncle taught him how to run a butcher’s store and he started to buy meat and the necessary tools to trim the meat. Gradually, with help from his wife, he was able to expand the little butcher’s shop. He starts work at 4am cutting up the meat so that it is ready on time. To further expand his business, Victor wants to buy meat, pork, and bones. In the future he would like to be a wholesale meat distributor.
