A loan of $850 helped to purchase the feed he needs to fatten up his pregnant pigs.


Orlando De Jesus's story

Orlando is married and has three children, who he is able to provide with a good quality education thanks to his business raising pigs. Through his business, he has managed to provide his family with a respectable life. He began his business four years ago because he had previously worked in a place he had to leave due to circumstances beyond his control. He found the opportunity to continue generating the income necessary to maintain his living expenses by raising pigs. Thanks to the many orders his customers have made, Orlando is requesting a loan to purchase the feed he needs to fatten up his pregnant pigs.

His biggest dream is to continue having this business which has allowed him to overcome the great economic difficulties that his family was experiencing several years ago, and in that way be able to continue getting ahead so that they can all have a good quality of life.
