A loan of $775 helped to buy pigs.

Estrella's story

Estrella, 54 years old, is a simple woman. She lives in the company of her two children, who she cares for in the house she bought ten years ago. Estrella is dedicated to selling meat. Her work consists of her buying pig livestock in quantities, above all those of greater weight and in a healthy state. After acquiring them, she kills them to sell the meat in regional and district markets. With them, she obtains good earnings. Additionally, she takes advantage of the job she has to sell beauty products to customers who already know her. Her business is going well. "I sold more meat during the holidays" she said. Recently, she painted the area where she will open her Chincharroneria (a place where she sells pork-based dishes), where she will be able to obtain more income since she has the pork from her business and she will be able to use it herself to make the dishes. In this way, she can have greater income. She says it is going very well.

Estrella will invest S 2000 in the purchase of pork which will serve as ingredient for her chicharroneria as well as for her business buying and selling meat. In addition, she is grateful for the financial support that she will receive and promises to pay installments punctually.
