Marcela's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase a motor to repair the car, to sell chickens and eggs, and to get new income and, so, to improve her quality of life and that of her daughter.

Marcela's story

Marcela has worked for one year in her poultry business. Her wish is to create new distribution routes to sell her products, but the car she has is in bad condition. For this, she asks for this loan to purchase a motor to repair the car which will help her to go out and sell the chickens and eggs which her farm produces. In this way, she will strengthen her business, introducing new income to her household and, so, improving her quality of life and that of her daughter.
