Mr. Baltazar lives in the community of Ejido de Detiña in Acambay Mexico. Three years ago he started his sheep project.
At first, he was very disappointed because his animals were not growing and he was not earning a lot of money from them.
He became part of CHOICE’s entrepreneurs' group. He went to all the training meetings and put forth great time and effort to apply the knowledge he gained from them.
He is currently reaping the results of his hard work. He has been able to decrease the amount of premature death due to bad nutrition and, with his savings, he has improved his barn.
His sheep are amongst the best in the region and he has been able to sell them at a better price. His greatest success so far is selling stallions with great genetic value. He shares his profits with his daughter and grandchildren.
Mr. Baltazar wishes that many more producers will join the program and change their lives as he did.
