A loan of $1,000 helped buy chickens, bottles of water and materials to fix her home.


Leticia Monica's story

Leticia is 59 years old and lives in a semi urban area in Perimetral. She is married and has adult children. Leticia sells chickens and cases of water.

At the beginning of her business, she only sold chickens which is why with the support of her husband she was able to increase her capital and began selling bottles of water and coal. Leticia works alone from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. With the loan she will buy more merchandize like bottles of water and chickens to sell. Aside from that, she would like to buy construction materials to pave her home because during winter season her sales are somewhat difficult.
