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

A loan helped to invest in pigs to fatten and to buy feed for them.

Yenifer's story

Yenifer is a noble, honest, and dedicated person. She is "a warrior of one thousand battles" who, in order to reach her goals, gives her maximum effort, because she knows that other depend upon her, including her three children.

She is an entrepreneur with a business raising pigs, which began due to economic need. Her goals with her business are to generate enough income to buy a house, to pay for the education of her children, and to generate employment for other people in the area - primarily those who lack job opportunities and are in great need.

Yenifer wants to request a loan to invest in pigs to fatten and feed for them, in order to improve her level of sales, amount of inventory, and to have a production schedule sufficient to meet the demand that she has.
