Fabiana, Similde and family have repaid their micro loan and their project is thriving.
Similde & Fabiana
Just over two years ago Fabiana and Similde made use of a micro loan provided by St Mary’s Primary School in Chipping.
They invested their loan into an horticultural project. They now produce vegetables for their local market, local schools and the town market in Cristino Castro.
Their project has gone from strength to strength. The small loan provided by St Mary;s School gave Fabiana and Similde the opportunity to realize their goal. Now that the loan has been repaid another family will be provided with a similar opportunity.
Maicon has started his pig rearing project!
Three Little Pigs
You may remember that a few months ago the VinB trustees approved a micro loan for Maicon, a student at the Agricultural College in Cristino Castro, to start a small pig rearing venture.
Maicon watches over his pigs
The project is well underway. Maicon’s has constructed a pig sty, purchased his pigs and the pigs are now pregnant.
Maicon is expecting a litter of pigs to take his project to the next level.
It is always heart warming to see young people like Maicon who are really focused on living and working in their rural community rather than migrating to the big and overcrowded cities of Brazil.
Well done Maicon, we look forward to seeing the little ones in due course!
