A loan of $500 helped to buy feed and vitamins for his chickens.


Francisco De Jesus's story

Francisco is 60 years old. He lives in his own house with his two children who are 14 and 12 years old. He has been working breeding chickens to fatten for five years. He has many customers as he gives them good prices. With the sales he makes from his chickens he can pay the household expenses. Francisco is asking for a loan in order to buy feed for his chickens and vitamins so he can have better earnings from his sales and offer better financial stability to his family.
