Liliana Andrea's story

Liliana, 29, is a country woman who raises and sells chickens. The business grew out of the need to generate an income to contribute to the household economy because she was unemployed and her family was going through a difficult economic situation. The chicken pens are situated outside the house where she lives and her parents support her in the job. She learned the trade on her own and the business has taken hold little by little. Her relatives, neighbors and friends are the main customers. Her drive, determination and positivity have allowed her to get ahead, giving her a new opportunity to improve her family's living conditions.

Liliana is requesting a loan to upgrade the chicken pens and to buy poultry feed. This will allow her to take advantage of the available space she has and be able to feed the chickens to meet the high demand for the Christmas season which is approaching. She will be able to increase sales and income and thus care for her parents. She can also strengthen her business and increase the number of chickens she has. This will increase her profit and allow her to get closer to her goal of having a well-established business set up in a place independent from the house.
