Mary Luz's story

Mary Luz desires to makes progress, which is the reason that motivates her to work day after day. For the past 10 years she has been raising and fattening pigs, since it has become a great help in generating revenue for her low-income family. Mary Luz is 32 years old and has a nine-year-old son for whom she wants to provide a better future. Today she is fortunate to have the support of her husband, who works on a dairy farm and helps with the household expenses. She dreams of having her own farm so that she can generate jobs and help more farm laborers from the region.

Despite the difficulties related to dealing with regulations and the winter weather, Mary Luz is a fighter who presses forward and confronts adversity with great tenacity. At the moment, she is requesting a loan to repair her feeding troughs and to buy more pigs for fattening. Her sales should increase as the Christmas season approaches. This will generate more income, causing the quality of life for her family to improve significantly.
