Mayra Cecilia
Mayra is from Playas and makes a living raising and selling chickens. She began her business two years ago with the sale of clothing which helped her get enough money to begin raising chickens and pigs. Mayra likes animals a lot and it was for this reason that she moved from the clothing business to dedicate herself completely to raising of animals. She realized that it gave her better results although it requires more patience.

Because the house where she lives is her own and she has a lot of space for a suitable pen for her animals. She is also far from the city, so she does not bother her neighbors with the noise. The caring, cleaning and feeding of these animals is done by herself everyday. She goes out only two days a week to sell her products until finished. She does her work in this way because she is far from the city and the transfer demands her money and time. The sale price of her products are $1.40 per pound of chicken and $2.80 per pound of pork. She has many customers because her animals are local and fresh, which is most appreciated about her meats.

Mayra has not had major difficulties and hopes to continue this way because she is a single mother and the only means of support for her family. She has three children of 6, 10 and 3 years of age. Two of her children study in public schools and the youngest is her assistant. With the loan that she is requesting, she will buy chickens and pigs to raise. Her dream is to have many animals to raise and sell. She would also like to equip the areas where the animals are located to improve the cleanliness and to raise higher quality products, hoping to continue helping her children in their studies.

Mayra de Playas se dedica a la crianza y venta de pollos, empezó su negocio hace 2 años con la venta de ropa la cual le ayudo con el dinero suficiente para empezar la crianza de pollos y cerdos. A Mayra le gustan mucho los animales por lo que cambio el negocio de ropa para dedicarse por completo a la crianza ya que se dio cuenta que daba mejores resultados aunque requiere más paciencia. Como la casa donde vive es propia y tiene mucho espacio por lo cual ambiento un corral adecuado para sus animales y como está lejos de la ciudad no molesta con el ruido a ningún vecino. Lo que es el cuidado, limpieza y alimentación de estos animales lo realiza sola todo el día todos los días saliendo únicamente dos días a la semana a vender ofreciendo el producto hasta terminar. Realiza de esta manera el negocio porque está lejos de la ciudad y el traslado le demanda dinero y tiempo. El precio de venta de sus productos son $ 1.40 la lb de pollo y $2.80 la de cerdo, tiene mucha clientela porque sus animales son criollos y frescos por lo cual es más apreciada su carne. Hasta el momento Mayra no a tenido mayores dificultades y espera continuar de esa manera ya que es madre soltera y el único sustento de su familia. Tiene 3 niños de 6, 10 y 3 años, 2 de ellos estudian en escuelas del gobierno y el menor es su ayudante. Con el préstamo que solicita va a comprar pollos y cerdo para su crianza. Su sueño es tener muchos animales para poder criar y vender, también le gustaría acondicionar los lugares de crianza para mejorar su limpieza y así criar productos de mayor calidad esperando continuar ayudando a sus hijos en sus estudios.
