A loan of $500 helped to buy pigs.

Ana Julia's story

Ana is 68 years old. She has thirteen children and is a widow. She has worked in agriculture since she was a little girl.

She will invest the loan in the purchase of two pigs; with these animals, she will begin her business of buying and selling pigs.

She also plans to continue growing corn. The loan will help her business buying and selling pigs, which will become another means of economic income, allowing her to provide her family with what they need on a daily basis. She only has work during certain seasons with her corn crop; with her pig business, she will have a more consistent economic income.
