Ingrid Beatriz
Ingrid is a young, 23 year old woman. She has a partner and two daughters. She only studied until the seventh grade, since she did not have the opportunity to continue her studies because she dedicated herself to housework. She has spent one year working to raise and fatten chickens, a job she learned because of the need for an income and the lack of jobs in her country. To raise her chickens, she has built a gallery on the patio of her house with metal sheets and old wood, but it is sufficient with the water and food troughs. She feeds her chickens everyday, and she provides them with clean water with antibiotics and vitamins to ensure that the chickens do not get sick. She sells the chickens to large businessmen in the markets in the city, and for others, she brings the chickens to their houses.

To buy her chicks, she travels by bus, which passes through her neighborhood. The trip takes almost an hour. She always buys from agricultural service centers, since they sell good-quality chicks at a good price.

The loan that she is requested is to buy 200 chicks for fattening and 15 sacks of feed, including pellets, vitamins, antibiotics, and other things. In this way, she will continue to offer low prices; will avoid many trips to the city, since they are difficult; and will always have living chickens to meet the demands of her clients.

Having a gallery always full of chickens will ensure her income, which will help her to continue growing her business and the security of her family. She dreams of expanding her business so that her daughters can have an education and their own home.
