Elena has one hectare of farmland that she wishes to harvest. Last harvest, she managed to produce 80 sacks of rice. She is aiming to produce the same, if not more this time around. She also will use the loan to buy feed for her two female pigs who are both producing piglets. She sells the piglets at the local market. Elena really wants her two businesses to do well so that her two children can enjoy a good education. Elena started borrowing in 2008 and is really grateful for the progress she has been able to see so far.
