Blanca Lila G. de Rodríguez has raised pigs her whole life. She has made it her own business now that she has her own family and is married with four children. She sells the meat that she raises to the local supermarkets and butcher shops throughout the area.

Thanks to the help of her first loan from Fundacion Parguaya she was able to expand her business and include cows. She now raises 13 cows to sell their milk and their meat. With the loan she is asking for today, Blanca will invest in buying more cattle to raise and sell. With the earnings she has gained from the milk and the meat of her cows now, she sees that there is much opportunity to expand her business and raise the standard of living for her family.
