A loan of $4,225 helped a member to purchase pigs for butchering.

Santa Cruz Group's story

Hortencia is 35 years old, married, and has 3 children who are in school: José Manuel is in his 3rd year of high school, Isidro is in his 2nd year of high school, and Rosa Isela is in her 2nd year of middle school. Hortencia’s husband is named José Luis and he makes a living in agriculture.

Hortencia is a very hard-working woman who makes a living selling meat. She will invest her loan in purchasing pigs to butcher. She hopes that the loan will help her, since her business pays for her children’s expenses. She would like to set up a butcher’s shop in her house for selling meat.
