A loan of $800 helped to buy 200 chickens, concentrated feed, vaccines, and vitamins.

Francisco Antonio's story

Francisco is 66 years old, married, and has three children. For four years he has made a living raising chickens for fattening. He learned this job since he has worked all his life as a laborer, due to the fact that he never attended school because his parents lived in poverty. He keeps the chickens in small cages made of sticks of "tiguilote" (the White Manjack tree), boards, and chicken wire.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is for 200 chickens, concentrated feed, vaccines, and vitamins. This way he will save time and money by making only one trip. Also, he is certain that after his chickens finish each cycle he will have the income that is necessary to survive. His dream is to build large farms and to buy a dairy cow.
