A loan of $1,025 helped to buy pigs.


Miriam's story

Miriam is forty-six years old, is married, and lives with her daughter and grandson. She is applying for a loan in order to buy pigs and the feed that fattens them. She has all the facilities for this activity, and she gives the pigs this feed in order to fatten them more quickly. She wants to have her animals at an ideal weight in order to later sell them in the local market or in neighboring towns. She wants to generate the most profits for her well-being and she also wants to grow her pig-raising project. This is the first loan that she has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not had other loans from state banks; FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan with greater ease and with a much lower interest rate.
