A loan of $1,075 helped to buy two pregnant hogs and to make modifications to the corrals.

Cristian Camilo's story

Cristian is 25. He has lived in the country since he was a child, and learned agriculture from his father, who worked with livestock and crops for a living. Cristian is doing a course in pig breeding, so he has requested a loan to start his business raising and selling hogs. His goal is to apply his knowledge and generate an income to maintain his household.
He dreams of having a large pig farm and becoming the largest meat dealer in the area. With this loan, he will buy two pregnant sows and make improvements to the corrals.
