A loan of $1,200 helps to buy chickens and the concentrated feed to fatten them and eventually sell them.


Astenia Elizabeth's story

Astenia, 46, is married and her husband is a small-scale farmer. She has three children, two of whom live with her, and a grandchild.

She earns a living as a dressmaker and learned this trade by attending a workshop that was offered in her community. In addition, she raises domestic poultry and also sells tamarinds in the city market. She needs a loan to buy chickens and the concentrated feed to fatten them and eventually sell them.

Astenia's dream is to continue working and to get better results from her businesses.
