Mary gen Mata

Raising pigs is a common role for women in rural areas. Mary Gen wants to fatten her weaners more quickly and seeks a loan to buy special pellets to supplement their feed. She knows that the more weight the porkers gain, the higher price they will fetch. Mary Gen will use the extra cash to improve the family’s living conditions and ensure her children are educated.
