Hoisin Leivon

Hoisin Leivon and her husband Sanboi live in Arunachal Pradesh, north-east province of India along with their seven year old daughter. Since moving from the state of Manipur they have been struggling financially. Hoisin had previous experience working on piggery farms and had a desire to start a small piggery business to help their struggling family. Pork is in great demand in Arunachal Pradesh since the majority of the population eat pork.  After discussing various options with an Empowered Poor representative, she was granted 10,000 Rupees ($225) loan to buy four small pigs to start her piggery business. Hoisin’s family members are committed to help to grow their business.
