María Mélida's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy a batch of free range chickens and materials to make a run.


María Mélida's story

María had the opportunity to study up to high school as she already had a family. She is married, her husband works in agriculture, they have three children of whom two are already married and the other studies at University.
María makes a living from rearing chickens and has been in this business for 9 years. She learned the trade from her friend. Previously she only took care of household chores.
She needs the loan to buy a batch of free range chickens and materials to make a run. She used her prior loan to invest in her business and thanks to her good results she has already paid it off.
She dreams of owning a well- established farm and providing for her son so he can complete his University education.
