Carmen Celia's story

Carmen, 36, stands out as a peaceful, responsible and hard-working woman. She lives with her husband and their two children in Atuntaqui, near Otavalo.

Carmen raises animals such as pigs, chickens and guinea pigs but she gives more attention to raising guinea pigs since the people in the area where she lives eat many and her business is going well. She will use the income to help her children in their schooling. Carmen will use the loan from Fodemi to buy breeding guinea pigs to improve her stock so that they will be better quality for sale, and she will also buy chickens.

Carmen dreams of improving the quality of life for her family and wants her children to become professionals.
