A loan of $1,000 helped to buy guinea hens to sell.

Maria Vilma's story

The desire to get ahead is enormous for her; she lives with her mother and younger siblings. She’s very hardworking and has been raising chicks and chickens for the last seven years to subsequently sell. Crime is a very grave problem currently widespread in the zone where she lives which is why she hopes to get ahead by means of her work ignoring the bad influences that surround her.

Aiming at taking advantage of end-of-year season when the sale of guinea hens and chickens increases, she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy larger numbers of chickens as well as feed she gives them so they’ll grow and fatten up to be sold at fair price. She very much wants to improve her life to have a better future and set an excellent example for her siblings showing them that a better life exists away from delinquency.
