A loan of $1,200 helped buying clothes and pigs for her business.


Maria Faustina's story

Faustina D. has a business selling typical clothes, and the raising and selling of pigs, chickens and turkeys of which she sells a few of each. She has four children and three are studying, the oldest is now working and helps her economically. She has moved forward alone because her husband has an alcohol problem and is very irresponsible, so she doesn't count on his support. The major responsibility that Faustina has is the maintenance of her house, she leaves the house to be able to sell her products. Now she needs a loan to be able to buy more merchandise, which refers to clothes and buy some pigs, which this time of year sell more and at a better price. Faustina hopes to be able to grow her business, and like that she can continue supporting her children and they can continue to study, since she unfortunately did not have the opportunity to study.
