Albaida is 25 years old and is single with no children. Albaida raises and sells chickens, a business that produces good profits, in the city of Pucallpa. Albaida's business runs in a 45-day cycle. She purchases her chicks, feeds them well, and is ready to sell them after 1.5 months when they are fully grown. Albaida raises 120 chickens at a time and reports that her earnings are improving.
Albaida has been working with Manuela Ramos, a Kiva field partner, for one year and belongs to the "Las Doncellas" communal bank. She plans to use this loan of 1000 soles to purchase more chicks and the food that they will need.
Albaida's goal is to construct a larger chicken coop where she will be able to keep 500 chickens instead of just 120.
