A loan of $1,150 helped to make some improvements to her chicken coop and to buy more chicks to raise.


Maria Deyanira's story

María is a person who has always been noted for being very hardworking and wanting to provide a good quality of life for her family always. Because her husband died leaving her in charge of their children, María needed to find a business that would generate income to support her home and this is how she started to raise chickens to sell; she cares for them in a coop she built in her back yard.

Thanks to the good quality of the animals, María has created a very good reputation for her business in the sector which has guaranteed good customers which means very good sales to the point that often demand for her chickens is greater than what her coop can produce. Because of this, María is looking for a loan that will make it possible for her to make improvements to the chicken coop to enlarge it and to buy more chicks for her business.

María expects that her monthly income will increase considerably this way because she’ll be able to see to all her customer orders which she previously was unable to fulfill. In addition, María hopes that with higher income her children will enjoy a better quality of life and greater opportunities for progress.
