A loan of $850 helped to buy an incubator where she can keep eggs to rapidly increase the number of chickens, which will allow her to earn an income more quickly.


Ruth Noemi's story

Ruth, 33, is in a common-law marriage and has two children. She is responsible for the household duties, and she has also raised chickens for eight years. She has found that it brings her a good income, which allows her to help her husband with the expenses of their household and their children's education.

She buys the supplies she needs for her business in a city five kilometers away from her house. Transportation is scarce, so she either has to wait for hours until a bus comes or walk approximately two kilometers. Afterwards, she has to transport the supplies on her back on the way home.

She has applied for a loan from Fundación Campo to buy an incubator where she can keep eggs in order to rapidly increase the number of chickens, which will in turn help her to earn an income more quickly as well.
