A loan helped to buy chickens, feed, wood, netting, and water bottles.


Maria Virgelina's story

María has suffered a lot of adversity in her life, but she has always had the strength to overcome it and get ahead with her family in the town of Turbo.

Currently she's married and she has worked in her business raising animals for about eight years, a business that has been earning her profits with which she's able to cover her household expenses.

María's looking for a loan that will enable her to buy chickens, feed, wood, netting, and water bottles. She knows she can achieve this with the help of Interactuar.

She hopes the loan will enable her to get ahead with her business. She also hopes her business will grow and generate more income.
