Luis Alberto's story

Luis Alberto, age 51, is married and has two children. He lives with his family in a rural community in the Tela municipality in the Atlántida department.

Luis has been engaged in his business of fattening pigs for five years. He previously worked as a day worker on African palm farms. He also buys and sells African palm in order to generate other income.

He has currently requested a loan for 13,000 lempiras. He will use the loan to buy pigs to fatten and fresh African palm fruit to sell.

He hopes to use his profits to improve his house. He will do this so that he and his family will be more comfortable.
