A loan of $575 helped to buy animal feed in bulk.


Luis Alcides's story

"Many called the city an earthly paradise. But this depends on the lens you're looking through, because I prefer the tranquility and fresh air that I breathe in the countryside." With these words, Luis, 67 years old, explains why he decided to make a home with his wife in a small town in Amagá, Colombia.

Thirty-five years ago, Luis began to make a living raising pigs. Since then, it has been the single source of income for his household. Luis loves what he does and he give thanks to God that he still has his health and strength to keep working to provide for his family. Currently, he is requesting a loan to buy animal feed in bulk so that he can reduce his costs and do some repairs for his pig pens. He hopes that this investment will allow him to increase his earnings and improve his quality of life.

Luis dreams of increasing his production capacity and creating more jobs for young people in his area.
