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

A loan helped to purchase 5 pigs to fatten them and later sell them.

Maria Angel's story

María has decided to ask for another loan to continue investing in her business and, with it, generate the expected profits to be able to get ahead with her family. The borrowed funds will serve her to purchase 5 pigs to fatten them and later sell them. With the new investment, she will be able to diversify her businesses, since she also works selling and butchering cattle.

The effect of having invested the previous loan in her business was positive, since she got more earnings. Her family is the same and her financial situation remains stable.
