A loan helped to buy chickens to raise them and then sell.


Dolores's story

Dolores is 60 years old and has four children, all adults and independent. She lives with a son and four grandchildren in Crucita, a place with beautiful beaches where most of its people work in fishing and which has currently been greatly affected by the health emergency caused by Covid 19.

Dolores is a very hard-working woman who likes to work to obtain her own income. She works raising and selling chickens. Before the pandemic started she had sold her chickens and was going to start raising new chickens, but because of the quarantine she could no longer continue with her business. Currently her children support her financially.

This loan is to buy 50 small chickens, balanced feed and vaccines to start her business again. Her dream is for sales to improve and everything to return to normal.
