A loan of $275 helped to buy chickens.


Mariela De Jesus's story

At the age of 39, Mariela is the mother of five children who are 23, 17, 15 and 9 years old and a 14-month-old baby. With the aim of providing her children with a good quality of life, Mariela buys chicks to sell that she raises in a small space she set aside in her yard to do so. She learned this activity from her mother who taught her everything needed to develop in this activity. Aiming to improve sales and income, Mariela needs to buy chicks to stay in business and reach her dream of expanding it and provide better wellbeing for her family.
