A loan of $1,800 helped a member to buy pigs to raise.


Pacanquim Group's story

Lauro is 54 years old, and he is married. He has three years of an elementary school education. He has five children, and none of them go to school. He raises animals, a business he started by raising and fattening chickens. So far he has ten years of experience. His wife, who devotes herself to the household chores, helps him. He organized a group and requested a loan, which he will use to buy pigs to raise. When they are big, he will sell them for a better price. In the future he hopes to have a farm with domestic animals. The other members raise animals, knot threads, and work in stores.

In this group: Nicolas, Maria, Bonifacia, Calixta, Juan, Lauro, Margarita
