A loan of $925 helped purchase chickens and turkeys to sell.


Maria Cristina's story

Maria Cristina has worked selling chicken for the past 20 years in a small residential area in Guatemala City. She has the support of her husband and four children. She has had some challenges because there is a lot of competition where her business is located, but thanks to the good customer service she provides and the quality she offers, she has been able to keep moving forward. Every day she gets up at dawn in order to prepare her chicken for sale and to be able to finish early. She has one employee who helps her prepare the chicken to sell.

With this loan, she will buy chickens and turkeys which are sold a lot during this time. Cristina would like to improve her quality of life and grow her business--for example, she would like to eventually purchase a car so that she can more easily carry her merchandise.
