A loan of $575 helped a member to buy chickens and sell them in pieces.

Las 5 Rosas Group's story

Silveria lives in a beautiful locale with her husband Jose Luis and their three dependent children.

She asks for a loan to buy chickens that she will later sell in parts, going door to door. She has been doing this for 3 months and says that it's going well and that her household income has increased a little bit.

She started the business after her mother-in-law proposed it; she already has a business making bread and selling plastic goods, so she couldn't go from house to house. She gave the chickens to Silveria because she had children who could help her with the sales, and they are getting good results.

What she wants most is to continue in this business and also making bread so that she can support her children in their education.

The other members of the group are: Angelina, who sells plastics and makes bread; and Everfein who buys and cells calves.

In this group: Silveria, Angelina, Everfein
