A loan of $550 helped to buy cows and pigs.

Doroteo's story

Doroteo R.'s main business activity is buying cows and pigs to slaughter. Don Tellito, as he is better known in the district of Jamastran, has been in business slaughtering animals for more than 20 years. He is a very well-known person throughout his whole district because of the work he does.

He slaughters the animals at home where he has a special space for his butcher's shop. He also goes out to sell in different neighboring villages and communities which are near the village of Jutiapa. Here he already has customers who he provides his products to.

Looking at the conditions in which he lives, one can see that his business has been very profitable.

Don Tellito lives with his common-law wife who does domestic jobs and all their lives they have devoted time to their children of whom only 2 still depend on them.

He will use his loan to buy cows and pigs to slaughter and thereby sell more meat and make more profit.
