Gioconda Lizbeth's story
Gioconda is a happy and responsible young woman with the desire to be successful. She lives with her mother and two siblings, one of whom is a chauffeur. She learned agricultural chores from her mother when she was a child, as this is the work her mother has always done. With the passage of time it has become her manner of earning a living and therefore she is asking for a loan in order to be able to raise her small animals, particularly pigs, to fatten them for two to three months, making them more profitable, then selling them in the local market. In this way, Gioconda hopes to gather some savings and be able to learn a profession or business and in this way be able to continue doing her own things.
