A loan of $1,075 helped to buy supplies to make adjustments to the pens.

María Rebeca's story

María supports herself through various activities, making the most of what she learned from some relatives who taught her the business of raising pigs to sell in the market. She set up this business four years ago thanks to the knowledge she acquired. She does this work all day, feeding the pigs, washing them, etc.

In addition to this activity, María makes clothing for women and men, which allows her to add to her income to put food on her table. She hopes to be able to buy sewing machines to expand her clothing business when she has earned more profits from this business.

Currently María's requesting a loan to be able to make adjustments to the pig pens so the animals get the care they need and don't suffer any illness.

Although in the past few years María has gotten ahead alone, she's grateful to the people who make their contribution so she can grow financially and in her work.
