A loan of $550 helped to buy lambs.


José's story

José is 54 years old, married, and has five children. He lives with his family in Ambato, which is in the central mountains of Ecuador. He describes himself as a friendly person who likes trusting the people in his neighborhood.


José works with his wife and children raising sheep in order to sell them later. This is the second loan he has requested from FODEMI. The money will be invested in the purchase of lambs to raise. When the animals reach adult age, they can be sold. This investment will be a benefit because he will be able to grow his business and have more income in the future to support his family.


His dream is to become a wholesale animal merchant.
