A loan of $200 helped to buy pigs for the new year holiday.


Fortunata's story

The member, Fortunata, continues with her grocery store business and her business buying and selling pork in the major market of her neighborhood. She is hired for baptisms; weddings; first, silver, and golden anniversaries; and other social events. She prepares pork with tamales and sells it to the customers.

Now she wants to invest her loan in buying pigs, since in the city the tradition is to eat pork on January first to have abundance throughout the year. She wants the loan to invest in buying pigs for New Year.
