A loan of $1,000 helped to buy building supplies to build a chicken coop.

David Jonathan's story

Davis, 26, is single living with his parents and brother; they are a united, hardworking family. He’s been raising fowl (chickens) for the last year. He and a friend started the farm but David has taken it over entirely on his own and has been managing it well because he comments that the profits he earns are good; he sells the fowl in the nearest cities. For the last 8 years he’s also worked butchering pigs and cattle, an activity he learned from his father. To acquire the animals and supplies he needs he must travel to the nearest city located 12 kilometers from home; he travels there weekly to buy chicks and feed for them and for the pigs.

The loan he’s requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy rebar, metal sheeting, cement, sand, sieves and concrete block to build a coop to house his chicks more securely at night because currently he must move them into his house’s passageway and go out at night to guard them. With the construction of the coop he’ll have more peace of mind knowing that his chicks will be more secure.
