A loan of $800 helped to buy chickens.


Bertha Maria's story

Bertha is 54 years old. She is a hard-working woman who, two years ago, started selling chickens from a stall in the street with her sister-in-law in order to make more income for her household.

Bertha lives in El Suburbio and gradually, through hard work and commitment, she has become known by the area's residents for the low-priced chicken she sells. She currently works from 6.00am to 12.00pm selling chicken.

One of the problems Bertha has had in selling her chickens is the crime that exists in her area. In the future, she would like to have premises for her business since right now she has a stall in the street. For this reason, she would like to continue working and use her loan to buy more chickens in order to make more income.
