Blanca Alicia
Blanca is 41 years old, married and has a son. She has spent her life doing domestic chores but for the last 8 years has been working raising chickens, an idea that her sister gave her. She also has a small, home-based store with basic household staples.

She asked Fundación Campo for a loan to buy 200 chicks, 4 quintals of start-up concentrate, 16 quintals of last-stage concentrate and vaccines; to improve the coops and to buy more products for her store.

She will buy all of this in a city in the east of the country that’s four and a half kilometers from home. With this investment she’ll have a better farm and she’ll strengthen her store which will lead to better income. She will save part of it because she wants to give her family a better quality of life.

Later on, Blanca plans to buy pigs to fatten up and sell, to do some home improvements, to have much more money saved, to meet her community’s needs with her store and the farm because in her areas hers is the only one.

La señora Blanca tiene 41 años de edad, es casada con un hijo.

Ella se ha dedicado durante toda su vida a realizar oficios domésticos, pero desde hace ocho años se dedica a trabajar en su granja de pollos de engorde, esta idea surgió de su hermana. Además ella posee una pequeña tienda de productos básicos en su casa.

Blanca solicita el préstamo a Fundación Campo, para comprar 200 pollitos, 4 quintales de concentrado de inicio, 16 quintales de concentrado final de engorde, vacunas, mejorar la galera donde tiene sus pollos y para comprar más productos para su tienda.

Todo esto lo comprara en una ciudad del oriente del país que esta a cuatro kilómetros y medio de su hogar. Con esta inversión ella poseerá una granja mejor y fortalecerá su tienda, con lo que recibirá mayores ingresos, que parte de ellos los ahorrara, ya que desea brindarle a su familia una mejor calidad de vida. Más adelante Blanca piensa en comprar cerdos para engordarlos y venderlos, realizarle mejoras a su casa, tener mucho más dinero ahorrado, abastecer las necesidades de su comunidad con su tienda y con la granja ya que en ese lugar no hay solo la de ella.
