Luz Mery's story
This is Luz Mery, the mother of two children who is a concerned, hard-working homemaker who was raised with good family values. The low income of her household is what made her decide to start her own business raising pigs and chickens. She is very familiar with the activity because she grew up in this environment. Luz Mery faces different challenges like the strong competition in the sector, heavy rainfall and the cost of supplies; and therefore, she is being careful to request an amount that will allow her to make her sheds more resistent, and to buy chickens, pigs and animal feed.
