A loan helped a member to buy piglets to fatten and sale.


Unidas De Correa Rugua Group's story

The group is called "Unidas de Correa Rugua" and it is in its 6th cycle of the women's committee program. It is from the city of San Pedro. They are in an area in the process of urbanization, where they all work hard to improve themselves and get ahead.

Norma is one of the members who started raising and selling pigs. The business is growing steadily thanks to her efforts. She is a person who does not allow herself to be defeated and who works hard for her family, and to give them everything that she could not have and prevent them from going through needs like the ones she went through.

She applied for the loan to buy piglets for fattening at more affordable prices in the area and thus be able to offer them at a better cost.
