A loan of $1,025 helped to buy six pigs and concentrated food for them.


Lorena Elizabeth's story

Lorena raises pigs. She lives with her mother and her four children, ages 20, 18, 16, and 12. All of them are dependent on her, and three of her children are in school. Lorena works in agricultural activities such as raising pigs and barnyard fowl. She inherited this work from her parents, who taught her this occupation. She does this work from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm. Her advantage is that pigs have been sold at the place where she lives for seven years. She is applying for a loan to buy 6 pigs and also for the purchase of concentrated feed to maintain them. This purchase will help her to expand her farm and have many pigs. The risk in her work is the possibility of a sickness that directly affects pigs. Her goal is to create a more profitable business that will allow her to generate more income and give her children adequate living conditions.
