Juan Felipe's story

The young man Juan Felipe is an agricultural worker in a district in the town of Fredonia, located in the south of Antioquia. He is the father of a 19-month-old baby for whom he needs to begin again, with the business of raising and selling chickens. Currently he has only one pig that his father gave him, and he needs income for the support and care of his family in the house of his father-in-law, who gave him a small space on the patio.

He wants to build a chicken coop and buy 50 of these animals and feed for them, to start over again.

With this, young Juan Felipe will be able to improve his quality of life and that of his family, and support his father who is an adult of advanced age.
