A loan of $875 helped to purchase pigs and poultry.

Jorge Freddy's story

Jorge started out selling very few small animals, but then he began to use a pickup truck in order to improve the distribution to his customers. Using a loan he got from a relative, he bought small purebred pigs for raising, and he's still in the pig raising business to this day. He works with his wife; she helps him with feed and vitamins for the little animals. He sells a pig every 15 days. He reports that he hasn't faced any drawbacks in his business thus far. Jorge has two children aged 10 and 4; the older daughter goes to a private school. With this loan he'll purchase pigs and poultry. One of his goals is to be able to start another animal-related business so that he can earn enough to pay for his son's studies.
