A loan helped to buy chickens, feed and medicine for the chickens.

Vicenta Marianny's story

Vicenta Marianny and her family live in the city of Portoviejo, a city of honest and hardworking people who are doing everything they can to support their families.

She is a hardworking woman who, thanks to these loans, has been able to earn an income and help to support her husband. She owns a farm where she raises chickens. She keeps up to 200 chickens per season and, when they are ready, she sells them to visiting traders or local neighbours. She currently has more chickens on her farm for the Christmas season, when she sells the most.

She is going to use this loan to buy chickens, feed and medicine for the chickens. Her dream is to provide the best for her children.
