A loan of $525 helped to buy chickens and expand her sheds to have a greater capacity.


Carmen Alicia's story

Carmen is a woman of 53. She is a very solitary person. Her only companions are her chickens, which she has fed for these last few years, since her business is marketing and selling them. Her personal life has been a shambles, since her only son is already an adult who has his own obligations in his household, and she is separated from her husband. She has worked in this business all her life. Now life is smiling on her, since her sales are improving. Every day her chickens are more sought after by more customers, and for this reason she can indulge in thinking of modifications and expanding her business. She is applying for financial help to purchase chickens and expand her sheds, with which she hopes to increase her sales and give herself a better quality of life, and above all demonstrate that it doesn't matter how many blows life deals you, since you can get up as many times as you want and show life that you are the owner of what you can do and forge your path, that we are all born with the necessary tools to be great in life.
