Lorena De Jesús's story

Lorena studied through to 3rd grade at school. She is a single mother with two dependent children.

Lorena has been earning a living rising and selling chickens for a year which she learned from an aunt. She buys the chickens in the city and after some time she sells them in her community. Besides this she has a store selling basic products.

Lorena will use the loan to buy chickens to fatten and sell and also buy beans, sugar, oil, detergent, etc. to sell in her store.

Lorena dreams of providing her children with good education.
