A loan helped purchase pigs, feed, oats, potatoes, whey and vitamins.


Monica Alejandra's story

28 year old Mónica is a single mother who lives with her 2 children in an apartment she rents in Mira. She leaves her children in the care of her mother while she goes to work in a flower plantation. Her brother helps her raise pigs so she can cover her household's unforeseen expenses. Mónica is a hardworking, empathetic woman, appreciated by all who know her. She wants to grow her business raising pigs and so she is requesting a loan purchase pigs, feed, oats, potatoes, whey and vitamins. That will help her pigs grow big and healthy and likely to fetch a good price which will enable her to cover her household expenses.
