A loan of $550 helped to buy pigs to increase his number of animals on sale; with more animals, Juan can sell them for a lower price.

Juan Gabriel's story

Juan is just 19 years old. From a young age, he was taught the value of work, something that is very common to those born into peasant families where everybody has to do better through their work and humility. For this reason, little by little, Juan created his own micro-business selling pigs. Juan has one great advantage, which is his age. He has ideas and applies new sales strategies. Juan is always happy in his work, which has helped him to find new customers. Juan's charisma helps him to sell his products.

With a desire to progress and to be better and compete in the area. Juan is applying for a loan in order to buy pigs. Juan wants to increase his number of pigs and increase his stock in order to have a higher number of sales. Juan wants to prosper with his business: his perseverance and humility are his best weapons as he fights to progress in life.
