A loan helped to purchase chickens to raise and sell.


María Martha's story

Maria is 63 years old. She lives in a small village, called San Javier, in the canton of San Lorenzo, in the province of Esmeraldas.

Maria is a very hard-working woman and is the main support in her home since her partner abandoned her. Maria works raising chickens and farming area products, such as cacao and plantains. With this business, she has been able to provide for her family and pay expenses for her household and her children.

At this time, Maria needs a loan for the purchase of chickens and feed to raise and then sell them in order to have higher income and improve her quality of life. Maria hopes that, in the future, her oldest son can finish his university education and become an agricultural engineer. This way she can move forward with her land.

This loan is special because:

It focuses on the poorest one-fifth of the population with no access to financial services.
