A loan of $425 helped to buy broiler chickens and chicken feed to feed the animals.

Luz Helena's story

Luz is a 44-year old farmer. She is hardworking and friendly. She lives with her husband and 6 children, for whom she works tirelessly.

From a very young age, her parents taught her all the agricultural tasks, as it was the only livelihood option they had. Thanks to this, she now makes her living raising and selling chickens and pigs in the municipal market where she lives or to neighbors in the area.

The loan she has applied for will be invested in purchasing broiler chickens and chicken feed for feeding the animals. This will allow her to increase her production capacity and improve her earnings at the time of sales.

Luz says that this business has given her everything she has today, and neither she nor her children have wanted for anything. This is why she wants to continue with this business and involve her children in the labor, and thus continue with the legacy that gets passed down from generation to generation. This will allow them to have better health and living conditions.
