Yina Paola's story

Yina, 30, is in a common-law marriage. She lives in the town of San Antonio de Palmito where she learned to raise animals. Two years ago she started the job of selling animals which she would buy, raise, fatten, and then later sell according to the weight gained by the animal.

She is soliciting the loan with Corporación Interactuar in order to invest in the purchase of a motorcycle so that she can transport the pigs; thus having sufficient ability to fulfill the orders requested of her, and to improve her profit margin and income.
