A loan of $1,400 helped to buy chicks to raise, medicine, purina etc.

Santiago Felipe's story

Santiago is 37 years old. He is married with two children. For the last eight years he has worked raising, fattening and selling chickens. He has three salaried workers, and to be in the institution you have to be a client for four consecutive years.

He had problems with losses of a considerable sum in the production of chickens with epidemics. He has an advantage in that he is an farmer with land sown with basic grains, which helped him cancel the debt with the institution.

Currently he is asking for this loan to invest in chicks which he can raise, medicine for any pests and animal feed in bulk, like purina.
