A loan of $1,100 helped to buy quails.

Jesús María's story

Jesús is 54 years old, and he knows that to get ahead and offer his family better living conditions, work is the main passport to a better future. This is why he works every day in order to generate enough income to guarantee his wife and two daughters a better quality of life. For 10 years he has worked in the production and commercialisation of quail eggs, a product which is highly prized in his area.

His biggest wish is to be able to industrialise his production to generate better profits and to distribute it not only in the local market but in the entire region of the Antioquia department in Colombia. He is currently asking for a loan which he will invest in the purchase of more birds since his clients have increased their orders and he has to keep a stock that will allow him to fulfil the demand. He hopes to be able to offer his two daughters the opportunity to go through higher education and have a better future.
