A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy broiler chickens.


Parraxaj Group's story

Señora Maria is married, 35 years old, and didn't have the chance to study. She has eight children, four of whom are studying.

She makes a living raising animals, in particular broiler chickens. She set up this business when she got married, because she needed another income to help her husband with household expenses. Today, she has ten years of experience, and is supported by her husband who works as a day labourer.

Maria is organising a group to request a loan, which she will use to buy broiler chickens. In the future, she hopes to own a large broiler chicken farm. The other members of the group make a living raising animals and doing business.

In this group: Maria, Elena, Martha, Ana Mariana, Concepcion, Maria, Maria, Juana, Lucia, Maria
