Maria Socorro's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to purchase 5 pigs to fatten plus the commercial feed they will require.


Maria Socorro's story

María, at 61 years of age, still works in the countryside. She has her own business raising farm animals. María learned all these activities when she was small, since her parents taught her everything related to the management and care of their animals in the municipality of Nariño.

María is requesting a loan with the intention of purchasing 5 pigs to fatten, plus buying the commercial feed they will need. She is organizing a pork producing business, which will allow her to augment her capacity of production and, in the end, notably improve the income she receives from sales.
