A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase chickens.

Enma Lucrecia's story

Enma is a very hard-working lady. She is a single mother of 6 daughters, of whom the 15-year-old is a student. Her other daughters don't study any more due to lack of economic resources. Enma works raising chickens to later sell them roasted. She works in this business in the afternoons and in the mornings she works as a domestic worker in a house. Enma says that her daughters work as day laborers, and sometimes the girls go to glean in the fields that other people have already harvested in order to see if there is a potato or some other product that has been harvested left behind, in order to in this way have something to make and serve daily. The loan will be invested in the purchase of chickens. Enma hopes to improve the business to get her daughters ahead.
