A loan of $375 helped to buy wood to build bird cages.

Jesus's story

Jesús, 60, is married and has four children who live with him in his own home. Jesús makes a living raising chickens and hens in his recreational center. He has outfitted his home with everything visitors need to enjoy their recreational time, with sports games, drinks, and bird exhibitions. He has corrals where he exhibits fighting cocks, display cocks, or chickens for sale. He also rents out the property for receptions and social events.

He started this business more than 15 years ago with a small amount of capital. Due to the good reception the business received, he added more attractions. Currently, it is one of the most visited places in his town. He considers his business to be fairly profitable due to the good income he earns every working day. He decided to start this business in order to have an occupation he could dedicate his time to, because at the time he had a complicated financial situation. Now, he feels like a prosperous and independent entrepreneur.

Seeing the good results he has had, he now plans to expand his property to accomodate more people and to give his clients greater comfort. He has applied for a loan of 1,000 Peruvian soles. He is grateful for the financial support he is receiving in order to move forward, and he is committed to paying his installments on time. With the requested amount, he will buy wood to make cages for chickens and hens.
