A loan of $775 helped to buy chicks, vitamins and feed.

Blanca Olivia's story

Blanca, 36, is married to Oscar who is a master builder. They have three children who attend school. Blanca has been raising chickens to sell for three years, work she does alongside her husband.

The work she does is a bit tiring because the animals must be cared for. They have to be fed and kept clean. Her children help her with these tasks.

The animals are then sold in a store she has in Parque de las Orquídeas which is where she lives. She’s open Monday through Sunday from 7am until 5pm.

She will use the loan she’s asking for to buy chicks, vitamins and feed. She hopes to improve sales since her short-term goal is to be able to make some home improvements.
