María Lucia's story

María is 40, she is a single mother with seven children. From a very young age, she undertook small-scale chicken rearing and thanks to training that she received in the community for the manufacture of handcrafted goods (hammocks). She has also been working in this field for the last 2 years, everything she does is to support her children.

To buy the chicken and supplies to make hammocks, she needs to take two buses, the journey takes approximately one hour and is accompanied by one of her children.

The loan María is seeking from Fundación Campo is to buy 150 broiler chicken, chicken feed and $200 to buy supplies to make hammocks. As she says that this is very profitable, with the investment, she will have enough supplies to continue with the businesses and gain the income needed to improve her quality of life. Her aim is to save to enable her children to have an education.
