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

A loan helped to buy potatoes and balanced feed for her pigs.

Monica's story

Mónica, age 32, is a responsible and hardworking woman. She lives with her husband and her daughter who is a year and eight months old. They live in a rented house. Mónica previously worked as a household domestic, but she left that job so that she could care for her child without any complications. Since then, she saw the need to find another source of income, so she began raising pigs.

Mónica wants to obtain a loan in order to buy potatoes and balanced feed so that she can feed her animals and sell them later. In the future, she plans to improve her business by breeding pigs so that she can generate a bit more income in order to build a cottage of her own.
