A loan of $450 helped to buy concentrated feed.


Maria Del Carmen's story

María makes a living raising pigs and livestock. She lives with her mother and has no children. She works alone doing her agricultural activities at all hours of the day. She gets up at six in the morning to be able to do everything entailed in raising pigs and livestock, which she learned from her mother.

She's requesting a loan to buy concentrated feed for her pigs and livestock. This will help her have the necessary food to fatten the animals for sale.

Her goal is to work to be able to have a source of income from her business, improving her work every day.
