A loan of $1,575 helped to buy calves and piglets.


María Del Socorro's story

María's a mother and the head of her household. She has four children whom she has gotten ahead with a lot of effort. She has lived her whole life in a rural area where she learned farm labor. Thanks to that, today she has coffee crops and cattle and pigs to raise with which she earns the money to pay for her household's basic needs.

With care and dedication María has been able to overcome various obstacles that have come up, especially with the high cost of agricultural inputs and the veterinary products she needs to take care of her animals. This doesn't hold her back, though, because with her enterprising spirit she always finds a way to continue making progress.

This brings María to request the loan as support for continuing with her job. With the money she'll buy calves and piglets to raise and fatten for later sale.

She'll be able to increase her production and improve the household income, which will allow her to strengthen her business and stagger production to guarantee that she constantly has money coming in. This way she can continue to look out for the welfare of her children and have better living conditions.
