A loan of $575 helped to buy a pair of large pigs.


Anastacia Teresa's story

Anastasia Teresa, 64, has bought pigs to butcher for over 35 years. Her work has made it possible for her to raise and educate her children. She currently uses her profits to support her home and educate one of her grandsons. She has always enjoyed this work. Most of her customers always insist on very good quality.

She needs funds to buy a pair of large pigs to butcher and other ingredients to make Nacatamales (Nicaraguan tamales popular as weekend fare), fried pork rind, fried pork and all other pork-derived products.

She is a hard working woman who is dedicated to her home and to the quality of her products since she has a long-standing customer base that she secured through the quality and delicious taste of her products.
