Marcela raises Indian hens and sells them. She also fishes in a traditional way, which is a difficult activity. However, Marcela tries hard in order to catch the largest amount of seafood and sell it to local people.
Marcela is requesting a loan at INTEGRAL to buy hens, and corn and other types of feed for them. She will also buy nets and traditional materials for her fishing activities. All this will make her feel good, since she is sure that her profits will increase.
