Desideria's story

Desideria is a member of the communal bank "Las Luciérnagas" (The Fireflies). Desideria lives with her husband and is 47 years old. She has a 16 year old son who is finishing his studies at a public school. Desideria fell in love with her husband who sold chickens. Twenty-five years ago they went to live alone and she started to work with him selling chickens. She says that it is a good business because chicken is a basic food item that everyone wants. Since Desideria was in Finca she learned to save money. Before she invested all of her money and she did not save anything. But now she learned how to save to acheive her goals. Desideria needs a loan of $550 (1,600 Soles) to buy frozen chicken, chicken breasts, eggs, bags and hens. Desideria's dream is to start a poltury farm.
