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

A loan helped to buy two sows, to build two more pigpens, and to buy feed for the animals.

Luz Amparo's story

Luz is a farmer, born into a family of farmers and miners, a humble and hardworking family, to which she owes everything that she has learned about farm work. Thanks to that today she dedicates herself to raising cattle and pigs, an activity that provides an income for her household.

She is responsible for feeding the animals, for the insemination of sows to produce offspring and assisting in deliveries, in vaccinations, and doing all the procedures required for good care. This is the way she earns all the income to provide the basic needs of her home where she lives with her three children. Her drive, discipline, order and the love she has for her work permits her to always find new ways to get ahead.

She is encouraged to apply for a loan to buy two sows, to build two more pigpens, and to buy feed for the animals. This will give her the possibility of growing her business by increasing the pork production for the approaching Christmas season when the demand for this meat is greater. She can improve her income so she can move forward toward fulfilling her dream of having a well organized farm with many animals where all the family can work, giving them the opportunity of improving their quality of life.
