Ruby Elena's story

Ruby is a young, 25-year old woman who is responsible and hard-working. She lives with her parents and son in a humble home in a rural area called El Moral. She makes a living by working daily and caring for children. With her income, she has starting to raise pigs. She has known how to do this work since she was an adolescent. It's an extra source of income and in the midst of this crisis, it has helped to maintain her home.

Ruby wishes to increase her animals by purchasing a pig, piglets, and feed for them. This is why she is applying for a loan. She hopes to earn more money and start an emergency fund for situations like the one currently taking place. This has made her realize that not having her family prepared for such situations could leave them poorly affected.
