A loan of $1,675 helped to buy pigs.

José Leonardo's story

José, 26, loves the country and is convinced that his future is there. Although he never had an education because the school was far away from where he has lived his whole life, this young man dedicated himself to growing crops and raising pigs. When he became an adult, he decided to start his own business and make a living raising pigs.

He has realized many of his dreams with this job, and today his quality of life has improved. His biggest dream is to become a great micro-entrepreneur and be able to sell his pigs not only in his town but also in neighboring towns.

With the goal of achieving his business plan, José is requesting a loan to invest in buying pigs to increase his production and sales capacities.

He wants his business to allow him to have a decent home, because the one he lives in currently is in bad condition and needs repairs.
