Brisas De Leones Group's story

María Orbelina, 36, is married and has three children. She lives with her husband and children in a village belonging to Nueva Frontera, Santa Bárbara. She’s always liked commerce. She started out selling merchandise like clothes and others and ten years ago decided to start raising pigs to sell and this is her current source of income. Her market is in her same community and she currently has five animals she’s fattening up. She’s requesting this loan as a group loan.

The group is called “Brisas de Leones” and it has 8 members who appear in the photo thus: on the left, wearing a white blouse is María Orbelina, next is María Deysy, Eusebio, Elvira, José, Mirian, Maribel and Nelly on the right. They all live in the same community. Seven of the members grow beans and corn and she raises pigs. The total group loan is for 52,000 Lempiras and they will invest it in the corn and bean crops to attain better crop yields and in the purchase of animal feed, vaccines and to repair the corrals to improve the care the pigs need while they grow. María Orbelina’s goal is to build two more corrals to increase the number of pigs.
