A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy pigs and food to raise them.


El Esfuerzo Group's story

The members of the group continue in their businesses. Erika, a 21-year-old young woman, is married and has a two-year-old male son. She works raising and selling pigs. She requested her loan to buy some young pigs and pig feed. She started her business two years ago because of her husband, who likes animals. He taught her to feed and care for the pigs. Her business is important because of the profits she gets when she sells the pigs. She likes to see the pigs grow and get fat. She uses the profits to buy pigs and feed. Her dreams and hopes are for the pigs to grow and achieve, and for her entire family to be well and not get sick. The members of the group want to say to Kiva and Fundación Realidad, "Thank you very much for your loans. They help us to grow our businesses and to continue working and helping more people who need it."
