A loan of $775 helped to buy chicken, beef, and pork to increase her food production and sales.


Luisa Ercilia's story

Luisa continues with her eatery business, which specializes in roasted and baked chicken. These are in great demand by her customers. She, together with her husband and children, has helped her business grow, and she has been strengthening it with loans from Afodenic. She only used the loans for the business. She is very happy that she managed to prepare her three children. They are now professionals working with a better future.

She will use this new loan to be buy two hundred fifty pounds of chicken, two hundred fifty pounds of beef, and two hundred pounds of pork. She puts thirty whole, four pound chickens in her oven, and she roasts more on the grill. She sells them daily at her eatery because they are rich in flavor and their price is reasonable. Like the enjoyment of the baked meats, her sales increase on holidays. Then she manages to have better income for her basic payments and personal expenses.
