Lidia Maria
Linda was born in Pueblo Viejo but now lives in Quevedo. She is 62 years old and she raises and sells chicken. She tells us that in Pueblo Viejo she lived on a farm where they raised animals, and when she was a child she was taught how work with them.

When she married her husband she came to Quevedo and spent her time raising their children and taking care of the household. 8 years ago she began working because she separated from her husband and she needed to pay her expenses.

She likes her work because it gives her time to care for her health and to rest. She feeds and cleans the animals with her daughter, who always helps her when she needs help. Her biggest worry is that her animals will get sick and she will lose her income, money, and the ability to care for them. Her children are all adults and have their own families and she visits them from time to time.

With this loan she will buy corn, vitamins to fatten the chicken, and other supplies so that she can fix up her house (she would like to finish construction on her house).
