A loan of $1,000 helped to buy white piglets to fatten and sell.

Sonia Fabiola's story

Sonia describes herself as a responsible, hard-working and positive person. She is 43 years old and lives with her three children in the city of Latacunga, in Cotopaxi province.

Sonia's business is buying, raising and selling animals such as pigs. This business helps her to cover her household expenses and is her only source of money. She needs to increase her sales and her income because her financial situation is not very good. She has requested a loan from Fodemi to invest in buying white piglets to fatten and sell. This will increase her number of animals and will make her good income. She currently has six piglets which have yet to reach the correct size and weight to be offered for sale.

Sonia dreams of continuing in her business and growing her business so that she can eventually distribute her animals to large companies.
