Luz Y Vida Group's story

Rosa is 35 years old, married and has no children yet. She has a primary school education. She raises farm animals, specifically chickens, hens and turkeys. She started this business raising free range chicks, and so far has 15 years experience.

She is organizing the group and applying for a loan, which she will use to buy chickens for fattening. She hopes in the future to have a large chicken operation, and good earnings when she sells.

The other members of the group work in handicrafts, embroidery, weaving, selling firewood, making blouses and raising animals.
