A loan of $500 helped to buy pigs for fattening.

Roger's story

Roger is in a common law marriage. He is 45 years old and he lives with his wife and son. With this loan, he plans to buy pigs to fatten and then sell. He has experience raising these animals and he has done very well with the sale of pigs. That's why he wants to buy more pigs, in order to earn better profits. He hopes to have them ready for sale quickly and take advantage of current good prices.

He hopes to improve his situation and increase profits for the wellbeing of his family. It is the second loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has never had any other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered a loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
