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

A loan helped to buy chickens to raise and sell.

María Esperanza's story

María is married. Her husband is a farmer and she has four children, one of whom she still supports. She works raising and selling chickens, which she learned from a friend. The farm is located outside her home and she works from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm. She used to sell bracelets.

María needs this loan to buy more chickens to raise and eventually sell. Her goal is to keep working and enjoy a better quality of life.
