A loan of $875 helped to buy animal feed to fatten his pigs.


Arcadio De Jesus's story

Arcadio has always been known as a hard worker and this quality has helped him push his family ahead. Arcadio is married and has 3 children to whom he has always wanted to give the best quality education. From the time he was very young his father taught him how to raise animals. His father always had livestock and this is how he supported his family. Thanks to the learning and experience that Arcadio has with animal husbandry, many people seek him out to help with this business which has brought him renown in his field and thanks to his reputation, very good sales. Arcadio principally raises pigs and this business has given him the necessary income to support his family. With the enthusiasm of increasing his business,
Arcadio is requesting a loan to give him the possibility of buying animal feed to fatten his pigs.

Arcadio hopes to get the feed without affecting his monthly income. Currently he has very little liquid cash because he is building his own house. This is thanks to the fact that he also knows the construction trade. He dreams of having a good business, finishing his house, and giving his wife and their 3 children a good quality of life and better economic opportunities.
