A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy pigs.

Familiar Cristiano Group's story

Yolanda is a member of the “Familiar Cristiano” communal bank. She’s 68 years old and a single mother of 8 children. She lives with one of her daughters who is the one that helps her work. She lives in the community of Guayabillas and for the last 40 years has worked buying pigs to butcher. Her parents taught her how to work since she was little. She is a very tenacious, hardworking person; she has managed to support her family through this business.

Yolanda started to buy pigs with the little help she got from her children and with loans from FAMA has managed to enlarge the business. She has no problems with sales because demand is good. The loan Yolanda needs it to buy pigs. One of the inconveniences she faces it that sometimes she does not find any pigs to butcher or does not have enough money to buy pigs. Yolanda has been working with FAMA for more than 15 cycles and she is very grateful for the support she’s gotten; she’s made her payments punctually.
