Bertha Margarita
Bertha is a woman who is known as a positive, successful and very responsible person. She lives with her two children in Latacunga, which is located in the Province of Cotopaxi.

Bertha works alone at her home buying and selling pigs. This business helps her cover some expenses of her household. At the moment, she has some pigs which are in the process of being fattened up. The loan she is requesting from FODEMI is to buy piglets of the white pig variety to raise and breed, because there is great demand for these on the market. She will also use the loan in the construction of pens for her animals and to buy feed such as commercial balanced feed. This process will help Bertha have more pigs in her business and be able to raise them for later sale, which in turn will generate an increase in her income, so that she can improve the quality of life for her loved ones.

Bertha's dream is to have more piglets so her children can continue the business.
