Diana
Diana is 27 years-old and the mother of an only one-year-old son. She lives with her partner, who is a heavy machinery mechanic, in her mother-in-law's house.

Six months ago Diana began raising chickens in a small coop that she put up in her mother-in-law's garden. She raises the chickens outdoors so they are known as "farm chickens," which people prefer for their natural growth. What Diana likes about her job is raising the animals well so they reach a good weight and can be sold for a fair price. The business is profitable because the neighbors constantly buy chickens, and when Diana can't sell them all she prepares traditional chicken stock, which she sells outside of the home. Diana is very satisfied with this business, especially since she has the support of her mother-in-law and her two sisters-in-law.

This is her second loan with MFP. Diana likes her communal bank because her fellow members are organized and very hard-working. With the funds from this loan she will buy more baby chickens and enough feed to raise them.
View original language description ↓
Diana tiene 27 años, es madre de un niño de un añito; vive junto a su pareja, quien es mecánico de maquinaria pesada, en la casa de su suegra.

Desde hace 6 meses empezó a criar pollos en un pequeño corral que adecuó en la huerta de su suegra, los cría al aire libre y son conocidos como los “pollos de chacra”, los cuales la gente prefiere por su crecimiento natural.
Lo que a Diana le gusta de su trabajo es criar bien a sus animales para que tengan un buen peso y pueda obtener un precio justo; además es un negocio rentable porque son sus vecinos quienes le compran sus pollos constantemente, y cuando no los vende todos, prepara el tradicional “caldo de gallina” y lo vende afuera de su vivienda.
Diana está muy satisfecha con su actividad, también porque cuenta con el apoyo de su suegra y sus dos cuñadas.

Este es su segundo crédito con MFP, y lo que le gusta de su banco comunal es que sus compañeros son personas organizadas y muy trabajadoras. Con el dinero que ahora solicita comprará más pollos bebé y suficiente alimento para su crianza.
