A loan of $1,625 helped to purchase pigs to fatten (piglets), their food and upkeep.

Ángel Mauricio's story

Ángel, at his 53 years of age, is married and the father of one son. He has dedicated all of his productive life to farming thanks to the teachings of his family. Now he is engaged in raising pigs and has a tomato crop. With this he has managed to obtain money to provide the household expenses. The client is an active man, a worker, is vigorous, and strives every day to get ahead.

He seeks this loan with the goal of investing it in the purchase of pigs to fatten (piglets) and their food and upkeep. This will allow him to take advantage of discounts for cash payment, and to continue with the care, raising, and fattening of the pigs to sell them at a better price in the December season. In this way he will be able to increase his revenue and advance one step closer toward reaching his primary goal, which is to make his business a profitable and sustainable activity over time. This will allow him to have the economic stability to give his son a better education and improve the quality of life of his whole family.
