A loan of $1,575 helped to buy chickens, feed and vitamins.

Laura Azucena's story

Laura lives in Playas, where she raises and sells chickens for a living. She is married and has a 17 year old son that goes to shool, while her husband is a construction manager.

Laura decided a year ago to start selling chickens after she originally started raising them for her personal consumption. Soon her relatives and neighbors asked if she she had any to sell, which ultimately led her to consider this as an option. Since then, she has been raising chickens of different sizes in several sheds. She does all the work on her own and sells chickens 2 or 3 days a week depending on how many orders she has. Laura admits that raising large quantities of these little animals entails a lot of care given that many die for various reasons because they are so delicate.

The loan she is requesting is to buy chickens and pigs that she wants to raise, as well as vitamins and animal feed. She hopes that, in the future, she can have a bigger business to raise other animals. With regard to her family, she asks that God give her good health to keep her alongside her husband and children.
