A loan of $850 helped to build a larger pen to care for the chickens and pigs and to buy more chickens and pigs to raise for her home-based business.


Luz Dary's story

Luz Dary is a hard working person who when not finding work opportunities and on seeing the need to give her son a decent quality of life, started an at-home business raising chickens and pigs in order to generate income for sustaining her household.

The biggest difficulty she has is that she is a single head of household because the father of her son abandoned her some time ago without making any contribution towards maintaining them.

With her business she has been able to improve the financial conditions the family experiences and now that she has the opportunity to grow her business she needs a loan to build a bigger pen to care for the chickens and pigs and to buy more chickens and pigs to raise.

Her dream is to be able to finish building her house as it only has the basics and although it is currently habitable, she wants to be able to offer her son a more comfortable home.
