Carmen is thirty-five. She is married and has two children. Her husband works in the fields, in the cultivation of sugar cane. She raises pigs. She belongs to the group Limonar 7. Other members of the group are Dolores Cruz Velasco and Amada Gutiérrez Ruiz (who also raise pigs) and Dolores Velasco Avendaño (who sells vegetables). They would use the loan to buy piglets to raise and sell when grown, thereby increasing their profits. Dolores Velasco would invest in a refrigerator to keep her vegetables in good condition for a longer time.
