A loan helped to buy chicks and chicken feed, to expand her inventory.

Evangelina's story

Evangelina is single and currently lives with two of her children, ages 14 and 15, who both attend school. Her older children are independent and help her out financially.

She works at several different things, including grinding corn for flour, raising chickens for meat and egg production, and she is a partner in a bakery. Her first business was a general store also offering a corn grinding service. Little by little and with a great deal of hard work, she has been able to expand into other areas. Evangelina comments that she took the initiative herself 39 years ago to find ways to bring in household income.

She has applied for a loan to buy chicks and chicken feed, to boost her inventory. She will also use part of the money to buy corn, flour, lard, containers, etc. to have raw ingredients and new equipment to increase bread production.

Evangelina dreams of expanding her business to grow as a micro-entrepreneur, make improvements to her chicken farm and help her family get ahead.
