A loan of $1,000 helped to buy pigs to fatten up.

Alba's story

Alba’s a 73-year-old married client; she has no children. She’s hardworking with a strong drive towards self-improvement. She’s always worked raising pigs because at the moment of selling them profits are good. Her husband helps her with the business. Occasionally a relative of her husband’s helps care for the animals when she has to go out on personal errands.

She is a very enthusiastic client with a track record in the Fundación. She took out several loans under the women’s bank modality and now has graduated into a personal loan. Even though the growth cycle for pigs varies between four to five months, she gets a pension and she’ll use part of it to make her monthly payments. She will use the loan to buy several pigs, feed and others.
