Maria Teresa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to build pigsties and buy pigs and feed.
Maria Teresa's story
María, 57, lives with her husband. Having raised their three children, they now want to enjoy their old age. María is kind-hearted, responsible, and hard-working. She asks for a new loan to build pigsties and buy pigs and the supplies needed to rear them. This way, the couple will have a source of income in these uncertain pandemic times, because work as a daily labourer is dwindling due to lack of demand, since farmers are growing fewer crops and thus need less hired labour.
