A loan of $1,000 helped to buy seafood and four pigs for fattening.

Julio Cesar's story

Julio is fifty-one years old, has a life companion, and has three children. He has a lot of experience in the seafood business. He learned this business together with his life companion; they did not have permanent employment and opted for this form of subsistence. They also make a living in raising pigs, fattening and selling them.

To buy the seafood, they rise at 5:00am to go to the closest market where the island and beach fishermen come to sell their products. Later, Julio travels by bus to resell the seafood.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy seafood and four pigs for fattening. In doing this, he will supply the demand of his clients and will be able to serve more potential clients, thereby obtaining a good income for the family.

He hopes to save up in order to buy himself a pick-up truck so that he can make his trips more quickly and easily.
