A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase chickens, balanced feed and vitamins.

Cindy Tatiana's story

21-year-old Cindy is a single mother, and lives in a rented house is Milagros. She has a business selling and raising chickens. Cindy tells us that her family has devoted their lives to trade and she learnt this from a young age. She likes her job because it allows her to pursue other interests, especially her family. Cindy works alone, but she has hired a lady to help with feeding between 7 to 11 am.

Cindy's schedule is very active, starting from 7 am until 6 pm. Raising chickens is a rather delicate because they need both food and healthcare, and the climate sometimes poses a difficulty as the winter season is very hard. Cindy has one child aged 4, who does not go to school and is in Cindy's care.

This loan will be invested in buying chickens, balanced feed and vitamins. Cindy's dream is to buy a vehicle which she can use for wholesale purchases, so that she can provide a better future for her child.
