A loan of $325 helped to purchase 3 pigs.

Maria Amparo's story

Maria works in agriculture. She lives with her husband who also works in agriculture. They have four children together, ages 23, 18, 12 and 11, and all of them still depend on their parents. Maria helps her husband with their business raising pigs on their small piece of land. They work together with their children. Maria is requesting a loan to purchase 3 more pigs. This will help them grow their business, which is always vulnerable to price changes or one of the animals getting sick. Maria would like to increase her income, so that she can give her children better opportunities, provide them with good health care, food and education.
