Sandra rosa needed £1195.65 for her business.
Sandra Rosa Benitez is a smallholder farmer living in the outskirts of the city of Loja in southern Ecuador. She is the single mother with two children aged six and ten months. The elder child attends primary school. She lost both her parents in an accident several years ago. Sandra started working as a teenager rearing livestock and chickens. She began with just 20 chicks. Once ready, she sold them slaughtered as a street hawker. After she had her first child, she needed to earn more income and decided to increase the numbers she raised. At present she sells between 50-80 birds each month to regular, established customers. These include butchers and restaurants. Sandra feels proud to have been able to support her children and to cover the household’s expenses. She reckons her monthly profit is around $300. Sandra Rosa requested a loan to build a new chicken coop with all the necessary equipment for breeding chicks such as a roof, heating system and food and drinks troughs. the remaining amount will be used to buy feed and more chicks.
