A loan of $375 helped to buy chickens and accessories for her chicken farm.

Zonia's story

Zonia is 43 years old. She is single and has 2 children who are 24 and 22 years old, with whom she lives in her own house. Zonia raises chickens at a house that she takes care of. There she has a farm with capacity for 400 chickens. She raises them and then sells them when they have reached the ideal weight. She has been in this business for 5 years. She works alone and things are going very well for her. She also sells soft drinks and sweets near a sports field. She considers her business profitable because it generates the income necessary to pay her household expenses, such as food, clothing, etc.

She decided to start in this business because of the experience that she had. Now she’s got her business up and running and she has a great desire to continue growing by reinvesting her earnings in expanding her chicken house where she can raise a larger number of chickens. She is currently requesting 1,000.00 PEN (Peruvian nuevos soles). She feels happy about the opportunity she is being provided so that she can carry out her plans. The amount she has requested will be invested in the purchase of 150 chickens and accessories for her chicken house, such as watering buckets and feeders, and also balanced feed in large quantities.
