María Domínga
Maria 41-years-old, is married, and has with two children. She was worked for 5 years in the sale of laying hens and chickens that gain weight. She says she learned the trade from her life partner since he has been working for 8 to the same activity. Before working with chickens she only helped her life partner with work at home. When he worked out of the house she was in charge of bringing the food to where he was working.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo (Foundation Field), is to cancel an outstanding debt to the institution. The rest will be used to buy a new batch of chickens (100) so that their productive activity does not decrease. Additionally she will buy 5 pounds of concentrate. This way she can continue working with her chickens since this is an activity she likes.

At the same time it will help her to have more income and improve her economic situation so she can provide for her family in terms of food, health, clothing. Also it helps people who buy her wholesale chickens to no longer have to ask other suppliers and incur additional costs.

Her goal is to expand the chicken business to have more and repair her galleys. In the rainy season the water is filtered which causes stress to the animal, which can cause a loss of business.

María tiene 41 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene dos hijos. Cuenta con 5 años de dedicarse a la explotación de aves ponedoras y pollo de engorde, ella dice que aprendió el oficio de su compañero de vida ya que se dedica desde hace 8 a la misma actividad. Antes de trabajar con pollos ella solamente ayudaba a su compañero de vida con los oficios en el hogar y cuando él trabajaba fuera de la casa ella se encargaba de llevarle la comida a donde estuviera trabajando
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para cancelar una deuda pendiente con la institución y el resto para comprar un nuevo lote de pollos (100) para que su actividad productiva no desmejore, además comprara 5 quintales de concentrado. Así, satisfacera la necesidad de seguir trabajando con sus pollos pues es una actividad que le gusta mucho.
Al mismo tiempo que ayudara a tener más ingresos, mejora su economía, para brindarle lo que necesita a su familia en cuanto a alimentación, salud, vestuario. Además ayudara a que las personas que le compran pollo por mayor ya no tengan que incurrir en estar pidiéndolo a otros proveedores y tener que incurrir en gastos adicionales.
Su objetivo, es ampliar el negocio de los pollos es decir meter más, reparar sus galeras porque en época lluviosa se le filtra el agua y esto causa estrés al animal. Y eso puede ser causa de pérdidas en su negocio.
