A loan of $1,000 helped to buy cuyes and pigs for her animal sales business.


Rosa Isabel's story

Rosa, 46, is married and has two children. She lives with her husband and children in Ibarra, a town in the northern Ecuadorean province of Imbabura. She is a friendly woman, hard-working and responsible, and she likes what she does.

Rosa operates a business raising and selling animals: pigs and cuyes, for example. She sells them at local markets or to long-standing customers who come to her because they know her animals are of good quality. This is her seventh Fodemi loan and she will use it--like her loans before--to buy more animals. She wants to ensure that she can meet the extra demand for her animals over the holidays. The income from the business will allow her to provide her children with a healthy diet and pay for their school fees.

Rosa would like to build a pen to keep her animals.
