A loan of $1,025 helped to invest in a pig-raising venture (building pens, buying pigs, etc).

Iván Alberto's story

Iván is 32 years old. He lives with his companion, and they have two minor children. He is a very hard-working and tireless man.

He works in a brick factory from 2 am to 9 am, then he goes to load trucks with merchandise until 3 pm, and he uses the remaining time on the farm of some relatives, where they have allowed him to plant sugar cane and coffee and also to raise pigs, a business that he alternates with his other activities.

Iván dreams of having the pigs at his own house, and to do that, he needs to build the pens. For this reason, he has applied for this loan to build the pens and buy more pigs, invest in the supplies needed to raise them, and be able to offer animals of good quality at a better price, obtaining a large return for the well-being of his family.
