Paula, 52, is married to Alberto. She only attended elementary school. She relates that since she did not receive formal education she learned to work when still little since her parents taught her that only through work could one get ahead. She’s been working raising pigs for ten years. She buys them when they are little and feeds and cares for them in a corral she has at home and when they are big and fat she sells them. Paula also works in the sugarcane fields. A loan will help Paula buy feed to continue raising pigs. She’s very happy with her activity and hopes with her profits to do some home improvements and continue investing more into her business. The group thanks Vision Fund for the support it provides them and sends a warm greeting to all the people who will make their loan possible.
