Esteban Manuel's story

Esteban is a 32-year old father of three children, for whom he works hard everyday. He is concerned not only with giving his children what they need to survive, but also with providing them with food, an education and even a quality toy. Esteban feels that a toy is evidence of the sacrifice he is making for his children so that they too will work and think of their future. Esteban works in the livestock sector, basically buying and selling pigs. He learned the business from his parents, and until now it as served him in supporting his family. Esteban is requesting the loan to purchase pigs, which will increase the number in his corral. This will make his ranch look strong in his field, customers will seek him out, and they will have him in mind when the time comes to acquire a pig. Esteban's main dream is to have a business that competes on par with other similar establishments. He also wants to provide his children with the necessary tools to become university-educated professionals.
