A loan of $250 helped buy pigs to fatten and sell around Christmas.

Antonia's story

Antonia is 38 years old, married, and has a son. She and her husband live alone in the municipality of Arizona, Atlantida. For 3 years now, she has been selling firewood and blocks, plus raising and fattening pigs to sell. The firewood and blocks she purchases and re-sells in her community, as she does also with the pigs she fattens and sells.

Antonia is in her 2nd cycle of loans with ODEF, including the present loan which is for 5,000 lempiras. She invests these loans in the purchase of pigs to fatten and sell. She is making this investment hoping to take advantage of the good sales season at the end of the year around Christmas. Her plan is to save for the future.
