A loan of $4,525 helped a member to purchase pigs and feed.

Grupo M (Flat) Group's story

The members of Group M live in a very quiet community where they still maintain their native language; the residents are simple people and the community festivals are full of happiness and attention to the guests.

The members have already asked for two loans from VisionFund México, which have been a great help to continue giving boosts to their businesses. For example, Juan and Alejandra will use their loan to continue raising sheep, while Alicia and Elvia will invest it in the pigs they raise.

Elvia is 28 years old and has lived in a common-law marriage with Jesús for the past 11 years and together they form a family with three children who are currently students. Elvia is asking for a loan to buy more pigs and feed. She says that she began the work after seeing that her mother-in-law earned a good income just by taking good care of the piglets. She didn't have any problems getting used to the tasks and responsibilities of caring for the pigs. She feeds them three times daily and keeps them in a corral. When she sells the animals, she immediately uses the money to pay off her children's school expenses.

Elvia has a dream of having her own house for her children and her husband, and for this reason she doesn't think of giving up the work.
