Blanca Inés's story

Blanca is 54 and raises and sells chickens and eggs. She has a small chicken coop in the garden of her home. She learned this work from her parents; she grew up on a farm. Because she wanted to improve her income and the quality of life of her seven children, she decided to start this business. It has allowed her to guarantee her children's education and improve her family's living conditions. Blanca is requesting a loan for the purchase of chickens for fattening and chicken feed, and to fix up the chicken coops. Her sales have increased due to the good care she provides her animals. Her greatest dream is to have her own farm to expand her business and increase its profitability, offering her family better life opportunities.
