Neiva Maricela
Neiva is 29 years old. She raises and sells chickens. She lives with her son in Playas canton. This is one of Ecuador's tourist destinations and it is noted for it wide variety of seafood.

Neiva began raising chickens 6 years ago but because she lacked capital she left the business and turned to something else. However, a year ago she returned to her chicken business with some savings which she had built up because it is a profitable business and she likes raising animals. Now she has a chicken nursery in her home. Her mother helps to feed the chickens in the mornings at 6.00am because Neiva has to look after her 9 year-old son and gets him off to school. She works in the afternoon until 8.00pm selling the big chickens which weigh 6 – 7 pounds. To make more income she has also started selling plastic goods.

Neiva will use her loan to buy chickens so that she has more animals to sell and also plastic goods so that she has another source of income. In the future, she would like to have her own home and have premises from which she can sell her chickens.
