A loan of $1,050 helped build a barn and purchase his first chickens to sell.


Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is a dreamer and is very creative. He lives in the municipality of Cañas Gordas with his wife (pictured) and their 15 year-old son. He has lived in the countryside his whole life, and for this reason, he knows agricultural work and animal raising very well. He wishes to start a small business producing, raising and selling broiler chickens, an activity that he learned from his mother who did it for her whole life. He and his wife have big projects planned such as getting their son ahead with a quality education and good values. The requested loan will be used to build a barn and to purchase his first animals. This will allow him to start his business and notably improve his household income.
