A loan of $1,500 helped to improve and expand her pig pens and purchase feed.

Alexandra Del Rocío's story

Alexandra is 33 years old. She is considered a friendly, hardworking, and simple woman who is very responsible with her family. Alexandra lives with her husband and their two children in Atuntaqui, which is located 15 minutes from Otavalo in the Imbabura province.

Alexandra works raising and selling pigs. Her business has 10 piglets and two female adult pigs.

This is the third consecutive year that she has worked with Fodemi. She will invest the loan in improving and expanding the pens for her pigs, since as her sales have increased, she has invested in the purchase of more piglets. She has a vision of being a wholesale distributor. She will also use the loan to purchase feed for her pigs.

Alexandra's dream is to become a distributor for large companies.
