Blanca Ligia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy pigs, potatoes, and animal feed as well as bricks and cement to improve the pigpens.

Blanca Ligia's story

Blanca is a good woman and a model mother and wife. She lives in the community of El Ejido. She makes a living from agriculture and raising animals, an activity that she grew up practicing since her parents were farmers; now this is her source of income.

Blanca is requesting a Kiva loan to make improvements to her pigpens and, thus, strengthen her business raising pigs. By doing so, she can continue working to enjoy peace in her old age. In the future she wishes to own a butcher shop where she can sell the pork that she raises.
