A loan of $575 helped to buy animal feed to fatten her pigs.

Diana Milena's story

Diana, 35, is separated and is the mother of minor twins. She's faced a difficult situation in her life, as her husband abandoned her and the twins and has refused to help her financially with the expenses. Given the conditions in her home and her lack of education, Diana had no alternative but to develop a business selling pigs so that she could generate income and cover the household expenses. This activity has enabled her to provide for her family and give them a better outlook.

Diana's main wish is to be able to have more income, so that she could provide her children with an education and a decent life. She wants to become a great small-businesswoman, and to do this she needs to expand her production capacity. To achieve this goal, she is requesting a loan to invest in concentrated animal feed so that she can fatten her pigs more rapidly. This way she could generate more income, which she will use to buy Christmas gifts for her children and more pigs.
