A loan of $900 helped to buy laying hens and supplies such as bran, corn and medicines.

Juan's story

Juan is 46 years old and is married to Miguela who is 36. They are fortunate to have two children and they both work hard and strive to give them everything they need so they do not lack anything in life.

Juan began in this line of business approximately 13 years ago in the year 2000. He used to work as an employee in a timber export company and with the money he earned he gradually began to buy egg laying hens. Once he had built up his working capital he decided to devote himself entirely to his mini business. Now he supplies eggs and chickens in the area where he lives and other neighbouring areas. He now has a regular clientele, which gives him a continuous steady income.

This loan will help him to buy more laying hens and supplies (bran, corn and some animal health medicines).
