A loan of $1,150 helped to buy two pigs to raise and to buy concentrated feed.


José Arnulfo's story

José Arnulfo, age 57, is a great lover of the fields. He has devoted himself to farming and livestock work all of his life. He worked for over eight years on a farm where he learned about pig farming. That is why he decided to quit his job and use the severance pay to establish his own business.

He bought a plot of land where he devoted himself to raising and fattening pigs. This business activity allows him to support his wife and five children.

He is currently requesting a loan to buy two pigs to raise and to buy concentrated feed. He will do this in order to increase his income. His biggest dream is to be able to build his own house on the lot that he bought. He wants to do this in order to improve his family’s quality of life.
