A loan of $1,500 helped to buy animal feed for his chickens.

Benjamin Miguel's story

Benjamin is single and has no children. He is a teacher in Ivirgarzama and has worked in this teaching unit for four years now. He lives near the highway to Puerto Villarroel where he has a small plot of land, and works together with his family. For three years now he has earned a living poultry farming. Every year he increases his production of broiler chickens. This year he has added a shed that is approximately 450 square metres with a capacity for 1500 chickens.

Benjamin is a responsible person who is dedicated to his work. He does the marketing personally in order to have a higher income, saying that "If I hire people, they do not work the same as oneself". He is not a member of any association because he has a small, rustic slaughterhouse to slaughter the chickens and he has a fixed buyer. As he mentioned earlier he has increased his production. Now he does not have the money for the next phase of production, for this reason he needs the money to buy animal feed for his chickens.
