Jesika Fernanda
Jesika, 22, is single; she completed elementary school and lives with her parents in Chunchi Canton in the south of Chimborazo Province. This canton is noted for being an agricultural and livestock raising zone. It also has some tourist attractions like waterfalls, lagoons and moors; these are activities that contribute to the province’s economy. However, statistics show that there is a high poverty index and unsatisfied basic needs; there is also a worrisome illiteracy level. Chunchi is also, though, a place that stands out for the kindness of its residents and its modern architecture.

Jesika was unable to continue her schooling due to lack of economic resources and that’s when she followed her hardworking parents’ example as pig farmers and now she has 12 years’ experience in this activity she spends 8 hours daily in; she knows it quite well.

Jesika requested a loan that she’ll use in its entirety to buy pigs that will help increase her income generating profits that she’ll use to restart her schooling and also to help her parents meet their health and food needs.

Jesika es soltera, tiene 22 años y realizó estudios primarios, y vive con sus padres en el Cantón Chunchi al sur de la provincia de Chimborazo, un cantón que se caracteriza por ser una zona agrícola y ganadera y además cuenta con algunos lugares turísticos como cascadas, lagunas y páramos; actividades que aportan a la economía de la provincia, sin embargo, estadísticas demuestran que existe un alto porcentaje de pobreza por necesidades básicas insatisfechas y además un índice preocupante de analfabetismo. Chunchi es un lugar que también se destaca por la amabilidad de su gente y el diseño arquitectónico moderno.
Jesika no pudo continuar sus estudios por la falta de recursos económicos y entonces fue cuando aprendió con el ejemplo de sus trabajadores padres el negocio de criar cerdos para luego comercializarlos, ahora ya tiene 12 años en esta actividad a la cual le dedica 8 horas al día por lo que conoce mucho sobre esta actividad. Jesika solicitó un préstamo el cual lo utilizará completamente en la compra de cerdos lo cual ayudará a incrementar sus ingresos, generando una ganancia que la utilizará para retomar sus estudios y también para ayudar a sus padres en sus necesidades de salud y alimentación.
