Carmen Celia
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.

Carmen tiene 36 años, se destaca por ser una mujer tranquila, responsable y muy trabajadora. Carmen vive con su esposo y sus dos hijos en Atuntaqui que se encuentra cerca de Otavalo.

Carmen trabaja con su familia en la crianza de animales como cerdos, pollos y cuyes, pero le pone mayor empeño en la crianza de cuyes debido a que es una zona de mayor consumo de cuyes y le va bien en el negocio y con estos ingresos puede ayudar a sus hijos con sus estudios. Carmen realiza un crédito en Fodemi para invertir en la compra de cuyes reproductores para mejorar la raza y que sean de mejor calidad para su venta y también para la compra de pollos.

Carmen sueña mejor la calidad de vida de su familia y que sus hijos puedan ser profesionales.
