Angelina
Angelina is 46, has a partner, and is the mother of four children. Angelina raises pigs and chickens on a small scale. She began to do this work 30 years ago.

To make a living fattening pigs and chickens, Angelina buys small animals in a square 15km from her house. Then she sells them in the same square three times a month. Angelina has applied to Fundación Campo for a loan, in order to buy four small pigs and 15 chickens.

She will also buy three bags of feed concentrate, and the drugs needed to prevent the animals from getting sick. With the loan, Angelina will be able to help her husband by contributing to the family income, as he is a farmer and the income from this work is seasonal. The additional income will also allow her to have a little more cash available to buy basic household necessities for her children.

In the future, Angelina plans to build a small shed for the pigs. She intends to buy breeding sows, so that she doesn't have to be buying small pigs.

Angelina tiene 46 años de edad, esta acompañada, y es madre de cuatro hijos. Angelina se dedica a la crianza de cerdos y gallinas a pequeña escala. Ella empezó a dedicarse a dicho oficio hace treinta años. Para dedicarse al engorde de cerdos y gallinas, Angelina compra los animales pequeños en una plaza que queda a 15km de distancia de su casa. Ella luego los vende en la misma plaza, 3 veces por mes.

Angelina ha solicitado un préstamo a Fundación Campo para comprar cuatros cerdos pequeños y 15 pollos. Tambien ella comprará tres sacos de concentrado y los medicamentos necesarios para prevenir que los animales se enfermen. Con el préstamo Angelina podra ayudar a su esposo con los ingresos de la casa; ya que él se dedica a la agricultura y los ingresos de esta actividad se obtienen de forma estacional. Los ingresos adicionales también le permitirán disponer de un poco más de efectivo para comprar los artículos de primera necesidadpara sus hijos.

En un futuro Angelina planea construir una galera pequeña para los cerdos. Su intención es comprar cerdas reporductoras, de manera que no tenga que estar comprando cerdos pequeños.
