Rigoberto Saul's story

Rigoberto is a 26-year-old who characterizes himself as friendly, educated, responsible, and very hardworking. Rigoberto lives with his parents in Otavalo, which is located in Imbabura Province.

Rigoberto works with his siblings raising and selling pink pigs. Since the economy isn't good, they decided to boost their business with more animals. For this reason he is getting a loan from Fodemi, which will be invested in the purchase of female pigs for breeding. The loan will also be used to buy dairy cows for the production and sale of milk. This investment will help Rigoberto and his family improve their quality of life and will support his siblings' education expenses.

Rigoberto dreams of having a meat processing business to make a good living and to help his family financially, and to help with employment for the people who need it most.
