A loan helped to purchase pigs to fatten, vitamins, and concentrated feed.


Ermelinda's story

Ermelinda, 32, is a single mother with a son. She and her son live in the town of Cabañas, Copán. She has been engaged in raising and selling pigs for two years. She buys small pigs to fatten and then sells them in her neighborhood. This business generates very good income. Ermelinda wishes to invest in her business, and she is requesting a loan for 20, 000.00 lempiras to purchase pigs to fatten, vitamins, and concentrated feed. This will help her earn better income. Her goals are to make improvements to her home, grow her business, and give her family a better quality of life.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Eleanor Francoletti-Putz.


This loan is special because:

It supports single mothers raising families on very little income.
