A loan of $875 helped to expand his chicken coops and buy chicks and chicken feed.


James Arley's story

James is 27 years old and currently works as an employee doing various jobs at a company. He was born into a humble farming family. There he learned how to work on a farm at a young age while he watched his father work, who has worked in livestock production all his life. In order to improve his personal income, he wants to start his own independent business raising, fattening, and selling chickens for which he already owns the chicken coops on the terrace of his house. It is for this reason that he is requesting a loan. He wishes to invest in expanding the chicken coops and to buy chicks and chicken feed to launch his business idea, which he will alternate with his current job. James hopes that his project will allow him to improve his and his family’s living conditions. He dreams of becoming fully independent, realizing that to achieve this, he should work with a lot of determination and dedication so that his business starts to give the results he desires. That way, he will have the ability to start a staggered production that guarantees the income needed to improve his economic stability and living conditions.
