Maria Del Carmen's story

Maria Del Carmen is 30 years old, married and has one young son. She makes a living butchering pigs and making tamales on the weekend. She started this work due to a lack of employment and the desire to provide for her family as a responsible mother. She is requesting the loan to purchase small pigs and feed for them so she can offer a quality product. The loan will help her financially meet her family's needs. Her dream is to purchase a vehicle so she can transport the pigs she purchases.
