Iris Marianela
Iris, who is 36 years old, began raising chickens several years ago. Through the good management she applied to the business, she is now a small businesswoman who buys and sells chickens. She does her work with the chickens in the area in front of her house. She buys them when they are small, raises them on feed, and then kills them to sell.

Another source of income for her is the sale of beauty products. One of her problems is that sometimes her animals become sick and she has to buy vitamins to make them well. But this does not deter her from her work, and therefore she wants to purchase corn, feed and vitamins.

In the future she would like to have a henhouse and space enough to build a house in front of her current dwelling.
