Santos Victoria's story

Santos Victoria Z. Z. is 65 years old and lives with her husband. She is also mother to two children who still depend on them. Due to the necessity to provide certain income for her family, and motivated by her family, she decided to start a business butchering pigs. She has been dedicated to this activity for more than four years whereby her customers come to her house to purchase pork. One of the challenges that she has faced is, due to her age, she cannot walk to faraway places so she is looking only in certain places where it is more favorable for the pigs. The loan will be used as working capital for the purchase of pigs and certain utenstils. Her desire is to continue moving forward with her business so that her children have the opportunity to get ahead.
