Glenda Maribel
Glenda is 32 years old. Through a great deal of effort, her family was able to give her a high school education, as they wanted her to have better opportunities in life. She later married and started her own family and could not continue with her studies. Her husband works in agriculture and her children attend the local school.

She raises farm animals for a living. She has been doing this work since she was very young and she worked with her parents; later on she married and started out raising animals on her own with the help of her husband. She also works in farming with her husband, growing corn. Her farm is in her home and she is able to look after her animals all day, as her pigs need a lot of care. Her eldest son helps her when he gets home from school and he takes very good care of them.

The loan will be used to buy four pigs for fattening and feed to nourish them.

Glenda hopes to progress with her pig-raising by building a pen that can hold more and she hopes to get her children to reach university-level education, if possible.

These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer.
