A loan helped to buy vitamins, feed, and other products.


Karina Marisol's story

Señora Karina is 27 years old, married, and has two children from this relationship. They are nine and seven years old and attend school. Her husband is a farmer and they live in her in-laws' house in Manta, a prosperous city visited by many tourists who like to enjoy its wonderful beaches and a beautiful fishing port, where the majority of people devote themselves to fishing.

Karina is a very hard-working woman who likes to earn an income and thus help her husband get ahead in life. In order to do this, she has dedicated five years to raising pigs at her home. She then takes these same pigs and sells them when they have finished their growth cycle. She sells them by the pound or whole, according to how her customers order them. For her, this loan is of great help because it will allow her to improve her quality of life and her business.

She will use this loan in order to buy vitamins, feed, and other products that she needs for her animals. Her dream is to have her own home and for her business to continue improving.
