A loan of $1,100 helped to buy pigs.


Juan Irene's story

Juan Irene butchers pigs. This has been his way of earning a living for the last 11 years. He started out on his own initiative despite not having much working capital. He started out with little and in time managed to secure a clientele. The reason for the loan is to buy pigs because he currently has good offers but he also has to pay to have the pigs transported to his house. Juan dreams with his children becoming professionals and upstanding citizens. He has four children in his care that he teaches daily how to earn a living.
