Zoila Teresa's story

Zoila is 67 years old and very committed to what she does. She lives with her sister, a son, and a nephew. All her life she has worked hard to give her son a good future.

Nowadays, her son is already a professional with his life very well forged thanks to the good teachings of Zoila which makes her very happy. Even though her son is already educated and grown, she continues to work and perform the tasks she's used to doing with the sole purpose of feeling useful and continue contributing financially to the home.

Zoila devotes much of her time to raising small animals, work that fills her with a lot of happiness because, in addition to being her source of income, it is also a refuge and helps her to not feel alone.

She's requesting help to fix her sheds and animal pens because they've become worn out over time and she can no longer raise her animals there. In the meantime, she's had to improvise a separate small shed in the back of the house to keep her animals.

Additionally, she wants to buy other small animals like rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens, thus increasing her business profits and allowing her to continue supporting her family.
