A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase chickens and pigs.

Silvia Patricia's story

Silvia began raising chickens many years ago. At first she had very few animals, so she helped her economic situation by peeling shrimp in a packaging company. She helps her mother through raising and feeding the animals, since the animals are fragile and can die without proper care.

Thanks to the support of the bank, Silvia's business has been able to grow and she currently purchases chickens and pigs for raising and selling. She sells every 15 days in her city's plaza.

Since she has not had any problems or inconveniences with the business, Silvia has decided to request a new loan in the hopes of increasing her sales and paying her bills without any problems. Her goal for the future is to start another business raising animals in order to have a greater income, since she is a single mother and wants to provide the best education for her child.
