A loan of $1,100 helped to buy pigs as well as chickens since she wants to expand her business.

Mariana Del Consuelo's story

Mariana is a quiet, happy and very hardworking woman. She is married, has five children and lives with her family in San Gabriel in Carchi province in the north of Ecuador.

She has worked raising only chickens for 12 years but she wants and needs to start a business raising pigs as well. Thus she is requesting her third loan from Fodemi since she needs to invest in the purchase of chickens and pigs and in the construction of pens, which will generate good sales and income.

Her dream is to continue working and to improve the quality of life of her children by proving them an education.
