Maria Carmen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy chickens and small hens, feed, vitamins, water dispensers, etc.

Maria Carmen's story

Maria Carmen is married and has four independent adult children. Her husband is retired and they live in their own house in 24 de Mayo, whose humble people work in short-cycle agriculture (onions, beans and tomatoes), raise poultry and pigs and work in general commerce.

Maria raises chickens and creole hens in her patio until they reach the proper weight. She then sells them by the pound to neighbors in her area. She also sells eggs to earn extra income.

At first the healthy crisis affected her greatly as she could not sell but now, little by little, she is reactivating her business to continue to earn income.

With this new loan she will buy chickens, small hens, feed, vitamins, water dispensers, etc. Her dream is to have a larger farm and for her family to stay healthy.
