Josue Gilberto
Josue is 22 years old and single. He lives with his aunt and uncle in the community of Yorito, which is in the Department of Yoro. His mother and siblings lives in another neighborhood nearby.

Josue is studying for a technical degree in agriculture and became excited about starting his own business. Through his own efforts, he was able to accomplish his goal. A year ago, he started buying young chickens to raise and fatten for eventual resale. He now has customers in his community and in the surrounding areas. His business is starting to grow. Josue has a salesperson who distributes the chickens by motorcycle. The birds are butchered and the meat is placed in a cooler before being sold to residents of the community.

At the moment, Josue is requesting a loan of 15,000 HNL to use as operating capital. He will buy food for the chickens, such as concentrated feed, as well as young chickens to raise so that he can keep his business in operation. His goal is to have a poultry farm with 1,000 chickens. He wants to involve his family so that they can help one another and expand his market.
