Teresa Virginia's story

Crucita is a few minutes away from the capital. It is a small fisging town. Its main source of income is small scale and industrial fishing and farming.

Teresa Virginia is 45 years old. She is married and has four children, three of whom are grown and independent, and one 9 year old, who is in school. Her husband is a farmer. They live in their own home. In order to get their family ahead and contribute to the household budget, Teresa raises chickens seasonally. She buys young chicks and keeps them for three or four months, or until they reach a good size and weight, and then sells them to merchants and residents of her community. With this new loan, she will buy young chicks, corn, water troughs, vitamins, etc. Her dream is to have a poultry farm and for her children to have very good health.
