A loan of $925 helped purchase of ten pigs.


Magda's story

Magda lives in the Comarca Sabana Grande neighborhood of Managua. She is thirty-eight years old and is married with three children of fifteen, sixteen, and eighteen years of age. All three children are currently students, and her husband works buying and cutting up cattle and pigs. Mrs. Magda works with her husband in this business, cutting up and selling pork meat from her home. She has been in this business for the past eight years. Her greatest difficulty has been finding a means of transporting these products. She hopes, in the future, to collect the money necessary to buy a small truck so as to facilitate product transfer. Initially, Mr. and Mrs. Magda were able to launch their business thanks to loans from AFODENIC, and through these they have been able to improve their business. If able to obtain this new loan, they hope to buy ten more pigs, which will be raised so that their meat can later be sold to both old and new clients.
