A loan of $1,000 helped to build a rabbit farm.


Marcos Ederberto's story

Marcos lives in Vilorma Grande district. He has 6 head of dairy cattle, is married, and has one young son who doesn't go to school yet.

Marcos and his wife both work producing raw milk but their main business activity is raising rabbits. They have more than 100 rabbits. They used to construct their enclosures by hand themselves, with wire netting and 'adobes' (blocks of earth). However, now that their rabbit population is growing considerably, they need to construct better homes for their rabbits. They are requesting this loan so that they can pay for new rabbit pens to be built. In this way, their production will be better and their income will increase.

Over time, Marcos would like to buy a home so that he can provide better living conditions for his family as right now they are living in his mother's house.
