A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase 300 chickens, feed, fencing to enclose the henhouse, watering stations and feeders.


Wendy Roxana's story

Wendy, age 24, studied through high school. Because of the economic situation of her family she was unable to continue her studies. She is married and her husband works cutting trees and planning basic grains such as corn and beans. He also does chores of a farm cutting, pruning and fertilization of coffee.

She is the mother of a 2 year old. Wendy takes care of the house. Previously she took care of the home of her parents and her uncle who had a small chicken farm. It was there where she learned to care for this small species. With time she gained experience.

Now, during the day, she is around to be sure that the chickens don't need food and she always helps her uncle because she doesn't have her own job. Wendy needs the loan to purchase 300 chickens, food, fencing to enclose the hen house, water stations and feeders. With this loan she will improve the chicken facilities and will make the space better.

Wendy's dream is to see her business grown and that her quality of life be different. She also dreams of bettering her home and giving her children all of the support that they need to study.
