Martha Olivia
Martha is 45 years old and lives in the city of San Gabriel with her younger children. Three of her children are older and are on their own. One of these children studies in Quito, the nation's capital. Her two younger children are in school. Martha is a hard-working person dedicated to raising pigs. She owns a small piece of land where she breeds and sells her pigs. As the number of animals she owns increases, Martha says she sees a better income and tries to give her children the best she can.

She began her business with the help of a loan from FODEMI. In the past she had kept livestock, but upon the death of her parents she had to sell everything. She is seeking her second loan to buy and raise more pigs. She believes that this loan will help her family, because with the money she makes she wants to help her children study. Her goal is to continue to move her business forward and to see her children have professional careers.
