Betty Patricia's story

Patricia is 29 years old and a single mother of three children. Lenin is seven and Lisbeth eight. They go to schools in the area. Sebastian is four months old and still in the care of his mother.

She is earning a living by raising livestock in the country. She has been learning this trade since she was a girl. The care that is necessary when dealing with pigs and the need to generate an income without neglecting her children has allowed her to maintain her little business.

With the money, Patricia will build pigsties and buy two pigs and feed. When she sells them, she will make a profit, with which she will be able to buy food and school equipment for her children. In the future she wishes to have her own house.
