A loan of $875 helped to build a chicken coop and buy chickens.


María Del Consuelo's story

Maria is a 62 year old who, being a widow, was forced in developing a source of employment which would allow her to earn some necessary income to live on. With the little chance she has of entering the work force, she decided to focus on agricultural livestock and built a coop in her house to raise laying hens, with the idea of selling eggs. This activity has allowed her to obtain the necessary resources to live and cover her basic needs.

At the moment she is requesting a loan to build a new coop due to the poor condition of her previous one, which over time and with use has deteriorated. The money she has left over will be used to buy chickens.

Her biggest dream is to be able to improve her quality of life without having to worry about her economy, enjoy a happy and quiet life by the side of the people she loves.
