Rosa Argentina
In the area of Nagarote in the city of León, señora Rosa V. has raised livestock and pigs for ten long years. She raises them to later sell so she can earn an income and survive. It is important to point out that she is a hard-working lady who has gotten ahead through her business, and this is why today she has turned to Ceprodel to request a credit to purchase pigs and their food to fatten and later sell them. She needs income to improve her economic situation since she is a widow and is the only wage earner for her home.
