Señora Marta Alicia is a single mother, she is 33 years old, and she attended primary school for three years. She has three children, one of whom attends school.

She raises hens. She started this business because she needed to support her children, purchasing two hens, and to date she has four years’ experience. She organizes a group, and she is requesting a loan that she will use for the purchase of five dozen hens, and feed for them. In the future she wants to have a farm with laying hens.

The other members of the group raise domestic animals.
