Lucrecia Barbarita's story

At a place called El Junco in the city of Bahía de Caráquez, the people work in agriculture, growing corn, and raising poultry. Lucrecia Barbarita, 64, is a widow with five independent adult children.

She does not have a house because the earthquake destroyed her home, she is living in an improvised tent in the yard. Lucrecia raises chickens and pigs in her yard. She raises them for two or three months until they are ready to sell, then she delivers them to some stores in her area, or sells them (alive) to merchants who come to her property.

She also grows corn and beans in the winter. She has some dairy cows and sells milk and cheese. With this new loan she will buy young chickens, piglets, corn seeds and fertilizers. Her dream is to have her cement house reconstructed and continue to enjoy good health.
