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

A loan helped to purchase chickens and feed, taking advantage of her location near Colombia's main port.

Magdalena's story

The port of Turbo is the largest in Colombia, and the city and surrounding area has many farmers and ranchers. Magdalena, a humble woman who is usually smiling, is one of the farmers and ranchers in Turbo. She makes a living raising chickens to sell to the many people who come to Turbo, and demand for her flavorful and nutritious chickens at the market is high. Magdalena wants to apply for a loan so that she can take advantage of her location, using the loan funds to purchase chickens and feed. She'll raise the birds and then sell them when they're mature and have the best flavor. Raising and selling her flock is Magdalena's only source income and the funds to pay for her children's education.
