A loan of $300 helped to buy slabs of beef and pork, cured meats and others.


Rogelio's story

Rogelio, 33, is single and has owned a butcher shop since 2008 in the city of San Lorenzo.

He defines himself as a very hard working, responsible man, especially with respect to his obligations. He’s not afraid of working since he’s had to work since childhood. Through his butcher shop he’s managed to support himself and help those that depend on him trying to provide a dignified life that’s free of privations.

He is asking for a loan to buy slabs of beef and pork, cured meats and others. He must be able to meet customer demand because besides selling in his shop he also sells at wholesale to small local stores that he’s establishing good working relationships while increasing his income. In the future he’d like to build his own locale to set up his butcher shop and save what he spends on rental fees.
