A loan of $900 helped to invest by purchasing pigs to raise some of them and butcher others for New Year’s celebrations.


Marisol July's story

Marisol continues with her business and it has gone very well for her. At this time, she is requesting a loan to invest by purchasing beer and pigs to butcher, since she has her food stand and sells a delicious pork-based dish called “chicharrón.” Since she has a greater number of customers, she wishes to purchase pigs to be able to raise them and sell them little by little, or butcher them and sell them plate by plate. She wishes to purchase four pigs for New Year’s Eve dinner, which is a time when pork is often requested, since it is believed that having pork for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day meals every year symbolizes abundance in the home. Marisol is requesting the loan to invest by purchasing pigs to raise some of them and butcher others for New Year’s celebrations.
