A loan of $450 helped to buy six piglets to raise.

Yobany Alberto's story

Yobany is thirty-four years old. He has lived in the countryside for his entire life, where he learned to work in agriculture and in caring for animals. Presently, he makes a living raising pigs, which he then sells in town. This activity is his source of income, with which he sustains his family.

His greatest wish is to be able to strengthen his business and to have a fixed income that allows him to offer his two children (sixteen and thirteen years old) a good education. For this reason, he is requesting a loan to buy six piglets to raise in order to increase his production capacity and his economic situation.
