A loan of $800 helped buy specialized food for her chickens.

Tomasa Ines's story

Like many women from the countryside Tomasa is seeking to become financially independent. Their partners see them almost always as housewives who should look after the household. The women themselves are trying to change this way of thinking and show that they have the same skills as men when it comes to farming and being productive. They wish to earn their own money which is well-deserved after all the hard work they put in every day.

For her part Tomasa raises chickens. She has been able to earn money for the household and help out in difficult times. She is seeking a loan to buy special feed for her chickens. The loan will enable her to earn more money for the family.
