Maria Antonia's story

María has decided to apply for a loan, which she will use to capitalise her business.

She will buy piglets, which she will fatten and then sell, in addition to feed and vitamins in order to provide them with the necessary care. Another part of the money will allow her to buy livestock to market.

The previous loan, allowed her to keep her business going and also to expand it, thus achieving economic stability.

She has been able to settle her loan payments and, through the profit made from the business, support her family finances.

Maria continues to live with one of her sons.
