A loan of $725 helped buy sheep.


Juan's story

Juan, 33, has 4 children who are 8, 6, 4 and 1 years old. He breeds and sells sheep in Karuhiza. This is his first loan with the Communal Bank. Juan doesn't have business capital, so he will use the loan to buy the sheep he needs for his business. Juan's objectives include improving his quality of life and using the income to improve the quality of food he gives to his sheep. His desire is to own his own farm where he can breed large quantities of sheep so he can improve his economic stability. (In the photo, Juan is sitting with his wife.)
