A loan of $1,275 helped to buy laying hens and improve the pens.


Mery Del Carmen's story

Mery, 49, is a woman that has worked for more than twenty years raising farm animals in order to support herself and her family. She learned this line of work by trial and error, given the economic difficulties she was having some time ago. Mery says that chicken and eggs sales have become the family’s business, being her husband the main contributor. Her biggest dream is to expand the production capacity, since her products are sold locally and have gained a lot of popularity in stores and small markets. This is why she is requesting a loan to buy laying hens and make some improvements to the pens. With this investment, she hopes to improve her family’s quality of life and guarantee her children’s education.
