A loan of $500 helped to buy building materials and pig feed.


Vicente's story

Vicente has a partner. His children are now independent adults. Vicente lives alone because of his work. Vicente works raising pigs and fowl and growing basic grains. Vicente learned this work from his father and he has now been working autonomously for ten years. Vicente has the advantage that he owns the land where he works.

Vicente will invest this loan in building materials and pig feed. This will help him to improve the chicken farm structures and to give the pigs good food in order to sell them for a better price, giving him higher profits.

Vicente would really like to continue working in order to improve his quality of life and to make his business more profitable.
