Santos Ángel’s story

Santos is 51 years old and studied up to 6th grade. His wife looks after the domestic tasks. They have three children, of whom the oldest son lives separately and just the two younger daughters live at home.

Santos makes a living from agriculture and raising livestock. He learnt this from his parents and now it is his main source of income. The plot of land where he works is some 6km from his house. He works for 8 hours a day and his wife and daughter help out, bringing him food. Apart from this he occasionally works as a bricklayer.

Santos will use this loan to buy pigs to raise and butcher and also to pay for agricultural supplies and pay for labourers.

He dreams of having a farm with 50 pigs and making good use of the profits from all his work.
