A loan helped to raise and fatten pigs.


María's story

María is a married woman and has three children.

She is requesting her first Kiva loan from Aldea Global, which she will invest in the purchase of pigs and five quintals of concentrated feed. She has five years' experience in the work, and has earned good profits. She says that when the pigs reach their best weight, she butchers them and can sell the meat in the community, earning better income.

She has been able to get ahead with the profits from the sale of basic grains and by raising and fattening pigs.
