A loan of $1,900 helped a member to buy pigs.


Patziquche Group's story

Santos is a 34-year-old single mother who did not have the opportunity to attend school. She has three children and all three are currently studying. Santos' business is raising pigs. She started her business with two piglets and currently has three years experience. She says that she has the support of her husband who sells clothes for a living.

Santos formed this group so that she could request a loan to buy pigs and concentrated pig feed. In the future, she would like to have more capital so that she can buy more animals and thereby make more profits. The other members of this group raise pigs and chickens.
