A loan of $925 helped buy young animals to raise.

Fortunata's story

This group member is 35 years old. She is currently awaiting the birth of her fifth child. She is pregnant and happy about the arrival of her baby. She has completely changed her business and now works with a new business. She works buying and selling small animals, like guinea pigs, pigs, and poultry. She shared that when she buys a hen for 10 soles she can fatten it and later sell it for 25 soles. That is how the profits work with hens, and it is almost the same with the other animals, although guinea pigs are more profitable because they procreate quickly and then she has more to sell. She is dependent on her own labor and works very hard to increase her earnings and, together with her husband, help her young children and improve their home. She is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of young animals.
