A loan of $800 helped to buy 50 chickens, and the rest of the money will be for making pastries (donas).

Roxana Jeaneth's story

Roxana is 33 years old and the mother of two girls who are 6 and 8 years old. She lives with her life partner who works making pastries such as donas, among others. She is a hardworking woman who has been raising domestic animals, such as chickens and pigs, for two years. She learned these tasks of her own account since she made the decision to begin caring for these animals in order to fatten them up and sell the meat in the shops of the municipality where she lives. This is her source of income and it allows her to take best advantage of her time.

Roxana travels every 6 weeks to buy chickens to fatten up. The trip takes an hour by bus to arrive at the city. She has identified the business of raising chickens for meat as profitable, and this is why she requests a loan from Fundación Campo to buy 50 chickens, and the rest of the money will be for making pastries (donas).

With the investment she hopes to buy more chickens than she has ever had, to have a greater source of income and improve her living conditions. Upon selling the chickens and in this way growing and extending herself in the market by selling the meat she is obtaining greater income for her home. Going forward she is thinking of expanding her chicken coop and being a powerful client in chicken sales in her region, and also providing a better life for her family.
