Gerta Ligia's story

Gerta Ligia V. is a young woman of 26. She lives in Nuevos Colorados and she makes 'cuajada' (a compact, cheese product). She also raises pigs. Gerta sells her products in Choluteca and in the city of Tegucigalpa to people who make orders with her every week. She sells her pigs monthly to a number of buyers who come from San Lorenzo. Gerta works in this business together with her mother. They work hard to get ahead and have a better quality of life. She will use her loan to buy cow's milk and rennet tablets.
