Samuel Antonio


A loan of $1,000 helped to buy pigs.


Samuel Antonio's story

Samuel is 20 years old and works as a laborer, raising pigs. He has been doing this since he was 15 and learned from his deceased father. He’s been doing this work for the past five years and he works five km from his home, working from 6:00 am to 12:00 pm. He spends the rest of the day tending to his own pigs.

He completed his bachelor studies and lives with his family, made up of three brothers, his mother, and father in law.

He is asking for this loan to buy more pigs, since this is a strong business for him and it generates good money in a short time. He will use the rest of the money to repair his car.

Samuel wants to have his own land on which he can build his house. He also wants to save some for the family expenses he may have in the near future and also provide an education for his younger sister and see her become a professional.
