A loan of $1,175 helped to buy pigs for breeding and fattening, and feed for them.

Francisco Antonio's story

Francisco is 46 years old, married, and the father of a son. During his productive life he has worked as an employee in various roles on farms in different parts of the small town. For the past 10 years he has had experience in the breeding and selling of pigs, and due to that, he wishes to start his own business to generate additional income for his family.

He has the advantage that a friend will lend him a pig pen, and for that reason he was inspired to request the loan, which will be invested in the purchase of pigs for breeding and fattening, and feed for them. In this way he will have the possibility of fattening the pigs for December which is getting closer; it is the best time to sell them at the best price, thereby increasing the profit margin for every sale.

Francisco is a thriving, active, hard-working man, and he goes to a lot of effort to move his family forward. He dreams of being able to have around 100 pigs, in order to raise them and have a staggered production that guarantees him the constant entrance of resources. In that way he will have the possibility of offering a better quality of life for his family and a good education for his son.
