A loan of $1,000 helped to buy six pigs and feed to fatten them up.

María Cacimira's story

Ms. Maria is 44 years old and married with four children.

Since she was a girl, Maria has worked in agriculture. Her parents taught her how to work with young animals and cattle. She started this work after her first son was born, so that she could help with the household expenses. For the last seven years, she has also had her own store in the community where she lives.

Ms. Maria buys pigs at a livestock market that is about 40 minutes by bus from her house. One of her sons accompanies her. She buys pigs, fattens them, and sells them.

She is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo to buy six pigs and feed to fatten them up. This way she can sell them at a better price so she can earn enough to offer her children a better life, an education, and everything they need to develop well.

Ms. Maria would like to make some improvements to her home and to stock more products at her store. She says that everything she does is to provide her children with a better future.
