A loan helped to buy a larger quantity of newly hatched chicks, in addition to 3 quintals of concentrated feed and medicines to care for the chickens which she has in her farm inventory.


Delmy Magdalena's story

Delmy has an 8-month-old son who is her economic dependent. She and the father of her son are separated, and they don't have any type of communication. She and her son live with her parents.

Delmy has been raising and selling chickens for two years. She began the business by herself, and she opened it because of the need to obtain economic income to meet her family obligations. She works from Monday to Saturday, with a schedule from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The advantage that she has in her business is that she already has established customers and is well recognized in her area.

With the loan that she is applying for, she will have working capital available to buy a larger quantity of newly hatched chicks, in addition to three quintals (about 300 lbs) of feed concentrate and medicines for the care of the chickens that she has in her farm inventory. The investment will solve the problem of having a depleted inventory, since by menas of this [loan], she will stock the inventory of her business in order to have more to offer to her customers.

One of her dreams is to have a poultry farm from which she will be able to distribute chickens to different places.
