Maria Sofia's story
Maria Sofia is involved in the raising of pigs. She has twelve sows in gestation and she takes care of the piglets from birth up to two months, which is the date when she sells them. Because of the numbers that she has, she learned to vaccinate, dock tails, deworm and give vitamins to the young as well as give them all the necessary care until they are born. Maria Sofia is a widow and has four children who support her in her business. She delivers the piglets to an establishment. Se is very grateful for the support that Kiva and Fape have provided her and she is committed to continue paying on time. She is requesting this loan to purchase food and medicine for raising pigs.
