Carmen Grimaneza's story

Carmen is a hard working entrepreneur, and is very responsible in her activities because she wants to reach her goals. She lives with her husband and their children in Otavalo, which is located in the province of Imbabura.

Carmen works alongside her husband, raising animals, specifically pink pigs. She has worked in this business for quite some time, since she was taught by her parents, and it is her only source of income which is why it is important she works with determination. She has requested a new loan through Fodemi, which she will invest in the construction of new, bigger pig pens, since the pens they currently have are very small. She will also buy litters of pink piglets to continue raising and selling pigs.

Carmen dreams of having a medium sized pig distribution business.
