A loan of $1,100 helped to build a farmyard.

María Del Perpetuo's story

María, 47, is married and has five children. For several years, she has been in the business of raising pigs to earn an income for her household. "Raising pigs is a decent way to earn a living and it is what I have been doing since my youth. I grew up on a farm where pigs, cows and chickens were raised.", says María with much pride.

Her goal is to have a large pig farm to improve her living conditions. Currently, she is requesting a loan to build a farmyard for her animals because the one she has is not hers and is too far away from her home, which is tiring because of all the kilometers she must travel daily to feed the pigs.
