A loan of $300 helped to buy pigs.


Jose Angel's story

José works by raising pigs and planting basic grains. He is a man who was raised by his parents and learned how to work the land, which his parents taught him. He lives with his wife and son. José is well-known in the community for being a hard-working man. His advantage is in having his own business, but the most difficult aspect for him is the distance from his home to the market that sells pigs.

José wants to make an investment in his farm by buying pigs, which he will care for and then later sell. For this reason, he is requesting a loan that will help him a lot, increasing his possibilities of creating a better business. One of the risks is of the pigs getting sick and the instability of prices.

His personal dreams are to increase his business opportunities and make it more successful. This will help him to improve his family's living conditions.
