A loan of $1,125 helped to buy concentrated feed for the newborn piglets so they can grow bigger and be sold for a good price.

Marta Liria's story

Marta is married and has a 12-year-old son. To contribute to the household economy she has a barnyard behind her house where she raises pigs to earn extra income. From a very early age she learned the trade from her family which has always lived in the country and been involved in this and other business activities. With so many years of experience, she now has knowledge about livestock farming, vaccination, birthing piglets, etc. And she is well-known for raising very heavy pigs which makes them more attractive to sell and this has given her a good customer base for her business. Marta is having economic hardship right now, so she is seeking a loan to help buy concentrated animal feed for the newborn piglets so they can grow bigger and command a better price.

Her greatest dream is to give her son a good education and to have a technical business with a capacity to raise more pigs.
