A loan of $450 helped to buy pigs.


Blanca Ines's story

Blanca is 23, single and lives with her parents and a son, who is 1 year old. She lives in Cotacachi, 15 minutes from Otavalo. Blanca is described as a hardworking and very demanding person who likes things to go well.

She works alone raising animals (chickens, cows) for sale. This is the first loan she has requested from FODEMI. She will use it to buy pigs, which will help her to increase her income thereby improving her quality of life along with that of her son and parents.

Her dream is to expand her business so that she will be able to give work to those who need it.
