A loan of $1,500 helped to buy more pigs.

Williams Alexander's story

Williams, 23, has a spouse. He’s a young man who works selling pigs; his father taught him this at the age of 15. He used to work and attend school at the same time. He and his father would go out to buy pigs in places like El Tiangue at the houses of people who work raising pigs. Today, he works selling them because his father no longer works due to a broken foot that happened in an accident and now he takes care of his father and his wife by means of the pig sales. Williams supports his home and buys his father’s medicine too. He buys the pigs in places far from his house at a distance of about 10 kilometers which makes transporting them difficult.

The loan he’s asking from Fundación Campo is to buy more pigs because the price of pigs is good now to generate a higher profit margin because the ones he has now are already sold and he wants to buy more to sell to sell to his customers. His business has a large turnover and he does not want to disappoint his customers; he needs the money to buy more because the money he has is insufficient.

The loan will improve his life because he works selling pigs and the money he earns from the sales, his profits, will be used to buy more pigs and his household income will increase at the same time so he can buy his father’s medicine and improve his wife’s living condition. In future, he plans to improve the installations where he keeps his pigs and to build his own house.
