Luz Mary's story

Luz, 46, has been raising and selling pigs since she was young, an activity she learned from her parents who have worked in the fields their entire lives. Her business started with one pregnant sow and after the piglets were born Luz fed them for a time and then sold them to nearby neighbors. This was how she gradually acquired working capital and contribute to family economy. Her family consists of her three children and her spouse.

She’s a very driven woman who is dedicated to her work which has made her very well-known in the community she lives in. She’s motivated to request the loan’s support to buy more piglets to raise and feed concentrate to feed them. This will make it possible for her to continue with her work and increase production to meet the expected increased demand at the end of the year season when pork consumption rises considerably.

This will improve her profit margin on each sale and Luz will be able to continue with her work purchasing more piglets and increasing her working capital to make her business still more profitable so she can enjoy better quality of life alongside her husband.
