Maritza Roxana's story

Maritza Roxana is 33 years old. She is in a domestic partnership. At this time, she doesn't have children, and her partner is a fisherman. They live in their own home. They live in San Clemente, a town of fishermen whose economic base is fishing, salt extraction, tourism, and the trade of handicrafts like cast nets and objects made from shells and snails, on a smaller scale.

Maritza Roxana makes a living by raising and selling pigs for butchering by the pound. She buys small pigs. When they have developed and reach a good weight, she and her husband butcher them and sell them by the pound to their family, friends, neighbors, in stores, etc.

At the beginning, the health crisis made her feel very bad since she couldn't sell or butcher pigs, but now, little by little, she is starting up again so that she can continue generating income.

With this new loan, she will buy compound feed, bran, vaccines, vitamins, small pigs, etc.

Her dream is to have a large pig farm and that her family will have much health.
