A loan of $500 helped to buy four pigs and 15 chickens to fatten and sell.

Angelina's story

Angelina is 46, has a partner, and is the mother of four children. Angelina raises pigs and chickens on a small scale. She began to do this work 30 years ago.

To make a living fattening pigs and chickens, Angelina buys small animals in a square 15km from her house. Then she sells them in the same square three times a month. Angelina has applied to Fundación Campo for a loan, in order to buy four small pigs and 15 chickens.

She will also buy three bags of feed concentrate, and the drugs needed to prevent the animals from getting sick. With the loan, Angelina will be able to help her husband by contributing to the family income, as he is a farmer and the income from this work is seasonal. The additional income will also allow her to have a little more cash available to buy basic household necessities for her children.

In the future, Angelina plans to build a small shed for the pigs. She intends to buy breeding sows, so that she doesn't have to be buying small pigs.
