A loan of $1,400 helped to reconstruct the guinea pigs' shed as the current one is too small and also to purchase pedigree guinea pigs.


María Lourdes's story

María is a woman who likes to work and who is very responsible with the activities she carries out. She lives with her parents and her son in Atuntaqui.

María works alone raising guinea pigs, a business that is very profitable in her area and which helps her to support her household and help with her son's university studies. She requested a loan from Fodemi which she will use to reconstruct the guinea pigs' shed since the current one is too small. She will also use it to purchase pedigree guinea pigs. This investment that will help her have more space and be able to raise a greater quantity of guinea pigs which will improve her sales.

María dreams of being a successful small businesswoman and being able to export her production.
