David Alonso's story

David Alonso, age 27, is a young entrepreneur. He wishes to be able to give his family a better quality of life.

He currently works as a “mototaxi” [three wheeled motorized vehicle] driver in the Támesis municipality. However, his income is not enough to support his wife, child, and sisters. He wishes to set up his own business by taking advantage of a family plot of land to raise pigs and chickens.

That is why he is requesting a loan to buy pigs and chickens, to build corrals, concentrated feed, and provide for the animals’ care. David hopes that his income will improve with this new business activity. He also hopes that his wife will fulfill her dream of having a beauty parlor. This would also help with the household expenses and improve the family’s financial condition.
