A loan helped to buy chicken feed, vitamins, and chicken wire.

María Estela's story

Maria did not get the opportunity to attend school. She lives with a partner, who is a farmer. She has 2 children, one of whom is still a dependent.

Maria has been raising and selling chickens for about 10 years. She learned this activity from her mother. She keeps her chickens on her property, and her partner helps to care for them. She is also in charge of the household chores.

Maria will use this loan to buy chicken feed and vitamins for the chickens. She will also buy chicken wire fencing to build a corral. Maria dreams of having a farm, covering the household expenses, and getting ahead with her family.
