A loan of $350 helped to buy pigs.


Jose Bitelio's story

José lives with his wife and two children, aged 5 and 2, in San Rafael Oriente, in San Miguel department. His business is raising pigs. He started his business with the support of his father who taught him how to care for the pigs he would raise. This gave him experience on his farm.

José is currently requesting a loan to buy pigs. He will use the loan to increase the number of pigs on his farm which he will fatten and then sell. This purchase will help him to expand his business and increase his opportunity to make more income. This will improve his business and improve his family's living conditions.

José dreams of becoming a large-scale pig salesman, providing his family with everything they need and looking out for his children's well-being.
