A loan of $575 helped to buy chickens for fattening.

Luis Esteban's story

Luis Esteban is 52 years old, and has been breeding and fattening chicken for 5 years, a business that he inherited from his father. Currently he counts on a shed in which he shelters 350 animals. This trade turned into the income with which he sustains his wife and his two children who are 17 and 21 years of age. His major dream is to be able to enrol his oldest son in university, because of the fact that he already finished his secondary school studies. He is requesting a loan with which he hopes to increase his installed capacity and to pay for care in order to finish fattening his chickens and be able to sell them for a better price. His major difficulty has been the plagues that have resulted in many chickens dying and caused great losses for him.
