A loan of $500 helped to buy pigs, compost, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and seeds.


Jose Santos's story

José spends his days managing his business so that he can have income to cover his family’s expenses. He cultivates basic grains and raises pigs. José has been in this line of work for a long time since he learned the trade from his family. He is married and currently lives with his wife, a daughter, two grandchildren, and his other children in a home that they own.
José will use this loan to buy pigs, compost, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and seeds. With this investment, he expects to provide his crops with good treatment. He will be able to obtain a better harvest and increase the size of his pigs so that they can be sold at a better price.
In the future, José hopes to have a more productive business so that he can improve his financial situation and provide a more comfortable lifestyle for his family.
