Roberto Antonio


A loan of $275 helped buy chickens and pay for the care needed to sustain them, and to maintain their shed.


Roberto Antonio's story

Roberto has dedicated a grand part of his life to raising chickens, and thanks to the fact that his mother also pursued this activity, he came to know the business from an early age. At present, he has a shed with chickens from which he generates his family's income and hopes to offer a good quality of life to his wife and their 3 children.

But Robert has had difficulty generating capital, due to an accident he had some months ago that threatened his work. He had to leave his business for a long time. Now, he is seeking to recover. With great effort, he has been able to bring back to his business the customers he used to have. And now, attempting to respond to large orders, Roberto is requesting a loan to buy chickens, plus the care necessary to sustain them and also, to perform maintenance on his chicken shed.

His dream is to have his business moving ahead in good condition once again, and to generate the household income required to be able to sustain his family and thus, get beyond the difficult situation through which they are now passing.
