A loan of $1,500 helps to purchase pigs, balanced feed, potatoes, whey, and veterinary supplies, and to make improvements to the pen.


Sofia Deyaneira's story

Sofia is a 20-year-old young woman, a very strong believer in God. She and her family profess their faith in Christ. She is a friendly, patient, and enterprising young woman. She lives with her mother and a sibling. She helps her sibling in carpentry, sanding and varnishing the furniture. In this way, she managed to get some capital to begin to raise pigs. In this way, this humble woman seeks the way to get ahead.

She asks for financing to improve her pen where she raises the pigs, in addition to purchasing, balanced feed, potatoes, whey, and veterinary supplies. In this way, she will be able to do her pig-raising work well. This will allow her to get the basic income to pay her expenses and contribute to the household. Sofía aspires to establish a sewing shop in the future to work with her mother, who knows the trade.
