A loan of $2,675 helped to buy nine pig gestation pens to increase production.


Juan Carlos's story

Juan is a 38-year-old farmer who is married and has three children. He learned about farming when he was very young and six years ago he began growing coffee and raising sheep cattle and pigs. He has a very good infrastructure set up on his small farm where he lives with his family. He is known for his strength and love of work which he does every day of the week from the early morning hours. This allows him to generate enough economic resources to support his family. Currently, he is requesting a loan to buy nine gestation pens for his pigs so he can increase production and meet the demand for suckling pigs for the Christmas season. This will make his business more profitable, having a positive effect on the family economy and lifestyle.
