A loan of $1,050 helped to buy more piglets and concentrated feed for the animals.

Nohemy Isabel's story

Nohemy, age 38, has two children, ages 18 and 20. She lives in a common-law marriage with her life partner. She has lived in the countryside her whole life. That is where she learned farming. She has worked with her husband on a farm for many years. They work as overseers. She alternates this business activity with raising and fattening pigs to sell. This supplements her income in order to support her family.

She is an enterprising, active, vigorous, and very hard-working woman. She spends most of her time taking care of her animals and doing the various jobs at the farm owners’ house.

She is requesting the loan to buy more piglets and concentrated feed for the animals. With this she plans to continue caring for her animals, and she will be able to have a staggered production. This will generate constant monthly income for her.

In this way she will have the chance to continue advancing until she fulfills her dream of being totally independent, of having her business generate enough income to be able to provide her children with a university education, and to improve the living conditions for her whole family.
