Rio Grande. Group's story

Verónica is 33 years old and is the single mother of three children, Yesenia aged 15, Nataly 12, and José 9 who are all students at local schools. She is a responsible, calm, hardworking mother who for twenty years has been raising pigs. She buys piglets, cares for them, feeds them, and then when the time is right, she sells them. The money she earns from the pigs is her sole source of income, and the money is used to feed and educate her family, and pay for the place where they live.

Verónica needs a loan to construct a pig pen to shelter the pigs from the intense cold at night and the heat of the day. Then they will be able to grow more quickly, and she will earn more money to continue paying for the expenses of her simple home.
