A loan of $800 helped to build a silo for storing animal feed.

Marcia Lindaura's story

Sra. Marcia sells balanced animal feed for cattle and pigs. She has been in this business for two years. Her husband is in charge of making several trips and searching for markets, while she is in charge of selling the product. They have five children who are in school. In addition to this business, Sra. Marcia began raising broiler chickens to sell. Her children help with this business.

Sra. Marcia has inadequate conditions for storing her products, so she is requesting a loan in order to build a silo (a structure designed for storing grain or granular materials, which is essential in farming as part of the harvesting cycle). She does not want any of her product to go to waste because she has had bad experiences caused by the rains. Marcia is a hardworking individual.
