Nuevos Orizontes De Jutacaj Group's story

Maria Nicolasa is married (common-law) and is 48 years old. She didn't have the opportunity to go to school, but has 6 children who are in school. She works raising farm animals. In this case, she buys baby pigs to raise and then sell. She started this business after inheriting it from her parents and has been doing it for 15 years. She has great support from her husband, who is also an entrepreneur.

This group is organized to ask for a loan to be used to buy 4 piglets and concentrated feed for them. In the future she hopes to have a large farm with other domestic animals. The other members of the group also work raising animals.

In this group: Maria Nicolasa , Carmen , Marta Alicia , Modesta , Bonifacia Matilde
