Zonia's story

Zonia, 43, is a hard-working and earnest woman who is eager to progress. She is single but has two children, ages 24 and 22, and she lives comfortably with them in her own house that she obtained when she lived with her partner.

Zonia makes a living raising chickens and as the guardian of a house that is in her care. There she has a farm with the capacity to handle 400 chickens. She raises them and then sells them when they have reached the average ideal weight for consumption. She has done this job over the last five years. She works alone and it is going well for her. Occasionally, she sells sodas and candies near a sports venue.

She considers her business profitable since it generates the income necessary to pay for her home expenses such as food, clothing, etc. She chose this work because of the experience she had, since in her youth she did the same work with the help of her neighbor at the time. Now she has her business under way and she is eager to continue growing, reinvesting her earnings and expanding her shed so she can raise a larger number of chickens.

With the 1500 nuevos soles requested, she will invest in the purchase of 150 baby chickens and the material to supply her shed, such as water feeders, feeders, and balanced feed in large volume.
