Marleni
Marleni is 34 years old, married and has two children. She used to be only dedicated to her household duties, but then started baking bread with chicken two years ago. Later, she started working as a photographer and taking videos. Today she is starting a business raising and selling chickens, since Christmastime is coming and that is when there is the most demand. Last year she gave it a try with 60 chickens and made a good profit, and she ran the business from her own home while caring for her two children, a 13-year-old boy and a 8-year-old girl. She travels to the city to buy the chickens and the feed in her husband's car, and it takes about 45 minutes. She is requesting the loan to purchase five pallets of wood, 15 zinc sheets, a roll of fabric, cinder blocks, black plastic sheeting, 300 chickens, five bags of feed, and feeding and drinking bins, and to pay for electrical installation. With this investment, Marleni will be able to upgrade her chicken coop and increase the number of chickens it holds. After taking her profits she will be able to repair her husband's car, which is in poor condition. It will also help her provide her family with everything it needs to improve its quality of life. Her biggest wish is for her children to have the opportunity to get an education, because she came from a family with limited resources and could not afford to go to school, and she wants her children to have what she couldn't.

Marleni tiene 34 años de edad, es casada y tiene dos hijos. Ella antes solo se dedicaba a realizar los oficios domésticos en su casa, luego estuvo elaborando panes con pollo para vender durante dos años. Posteriormente, inicio un trabajo como fotógrafa y toma de videos. Hoy en día ella esta iniciando el negocio de la crianza y venta de pollos de engorde, ya que viene la temporada navideña y es cuando hay más demanda. El año pasado hizo una prueba con 60 pollos y obtuvo una buena ganancia, ya que ella lo administra en su propia casa, al mismo tiempo que se ocupa de cuidar a sus hijos, un varón de 13 años y una niña de 8 años de edad. Para comprar los pollos y el concentrado, viajan a la ciudad en el vehiculo que posee su esposo y tarda unos cuarenta y cinco minutos en llegar.

El préstamo que esta solicitando es para comprar 5 cuartones de madera, 15 láminas, un rollo de tela ciclón, bloque, plástico negro, pago de instalación de energía eléctrica, 300 pollos, 5 sacos de concentrado, comederos y bebederos de agua. Con esta inversión Marleni comprara los materiales para ampliar la galera en donde tiene sus pollos e incrementara la cantidad de pollos. A fin de recibir buenas ganancias que le permitan reparar el vehiculo de su esposo que esta en muy malas condiciones y es el que les sirve para realizar los viajes. A demás le servirá para proporcionar a su familia todo lo necesario para mejorar su calidad de vida. Su gran deseo, es brindarle la oportunidad a sus hijos de que estudien, debido a que por provenir de una familia de escasos recurso económicos no pudo estudiar y ella desea que sus hijos si lo hagan.
