Bertha Yolanda's story

Bertha, 55, is married. Her husband is a bricklayer and had go to an area far away from home to try and find work since there were no jobs close by. They have three children, Jenny, Erika, and William, who are trying to be successful and take advantage of the support their parents provide.

For three years, Bertha has had a business raising chickens, which is a source of basic income for her and her children and her 85-year-old father, Alfredo, whom she takes care of.

Bertha needs the loan to build two chicken coops, and buy medicines, chickens and chicken feed so she can increase her earnings and provide for herself, her children and her elderly father.
