María Domínga's story

Maria 41-years-old, is married, and has with two children. She was worked for 5 years in the sale of laying hens and chickens that gain weight. She says she learned the trade from her life partner since he has been working for 8 to the same activity. Before working with chickens she only helped her life partner with work at home. When he worked out of the house she was in charge of bringing the food to where he was working. The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo (Foundation Field), is to cancel an outstanding debt to the institution. The rest will be used to buy a new batch of chickens (100) so that their productive activity does not decrease. Additionally she will buy 5 pounds of concentrate. This way she can continue working with her chickens since this is an activity she likes. At the same time it will help her to have more income and improve her economic situation so she can provide for her family in terms of food, health, clothing. Also it helps people who buy her wholesale chickens to no longer have to ask other suppliers and incur additional costs. Her goal is to expand the chicken business to have more and repair her galleys. In the rainy season the water is filtered which causes stress to the animal, which can cause a loss of business.
