Deisy Maria's story

Deisy is a country woman and the mother of two daughters. She has faced many setbacks in her life for her daughters, but she has always had the fortitude to keep moving forward and continue progressing with her family. For quite some time, Deisy has wanted to start a business raising and selling chickens. That is why she is requesting some big financial help, so she can purchase some chickens and materials to build a shed. With this new business, she will be able to generate income for her family, who are everything for her, and to improve her husband's and daughters' quality of life. Deisy will work hard every day to drive her business forward and make it into a sustainable and profitable business. Support a hard-working woman with a loan!
