Carolina Del Carmen
Carolina is 21 years old. She is single, and she has no children. Since her mother couldn't continue to support her studies, she only received an education through the sixth grade. After leaving school, she worked at various domestic jobs in private homes. Today, in addition, she raises farm animals such as chickens and pigs.

Today, Carolina works as a house keeper at a home in her area. She wakes up every day at 5:00 am to feed the animals that she has in her home, and then she walks the half kilometer to her workplace, where she has to be at 7:00 am.

This loan will be used to purchase five pigs and the concentrate to fatten them. Having greater production would mean improved living conditions for her family, because she wishes to finish her studies.
