A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a breeding sow and feed for her animals.


Miriam De Jesús's story

Miriam is an active, enterprising woman who has always fought for the well-being of her parents and her two children. She has had her own businesses, including a grocery store and a business raising pigs. Today she devotes herself exclusively to raising and selling pigs. She has the pens at her home and works every day by herself. She has been able to bring in enough money to provide her family's basic necessities and send her children to school. These loans offer Miriam a means of support that helps her move forward in life. She is on her sixth loan cycle and will use the loan to buy a breeding sow and feed for the animals. This will allow her to increase the number of animals she has and feed them so that she can sell the piglets at a higher price. Increasing her income will enable her to improve her family's living conditions, and her main goal is to work hard so that her children can have good careers and prosperous, successful futures.
