A loan of $1,975 helped to buy chicken feed for her poultry business.

Glevis Grisel's story

Glevis is an enterprising young woman, who in her first loan implemented the idea of a bakery business. For many months, it was very profitable and today she continues doing it. Thanks to this business, she achieved creating credibility in the people that surrounded and supported her so that her goal was possible to achieve.

Because of life, a health problem emerged in her family with her own daughter, who she had to take care of with time and money so that she would recuperate. Today, she is much better. This problem caused her to sell her business given that she did not have the economic resources to attend to the presented need.

Her family has been in the business of raising and selling poultry for many years. She learned it but not until today has she gone back to do it in order to overcome and get ahead. Currently, she is applying for a second loan with which she will carry out her new project. She will invest in the purchase of chicken feed since she needs assistance for 600 birds. This business idea is beginning to have positive results but she needs to inject a little more capital in order to improve and therefore give it adequate maintenance. She has had a good experience and is advised and supported in the technical part by her parents.
