Delmy Azucena’s story

Delmy went to school through the third grade. She is in a relationship, and her partner is a farmer. She has a young child. Only her partner and child live in her house. They are also the only people who are financially dependent on her.

Delmy has sold food and farm animals such as chickens and pigs for a year. She learned this line of work on her own. She decided to work in this business in order to help her partner. She does her work at home, starting at 6:00 a.m. and finishing at 4:00 p.m.

This loan will be used to buy pigs and chickens to fatten and later sell. In this way she will get a better income.

Delmy has always dreamed of making her business grow and seeing her son grow up healthy. She will keep working to give her family a better life.

More about this loan

This loan is designed for rural women in El Salvador. Loan amounts are much smaller than average and the field partner is not requiring any guarantee for this type of loan. The goal is to support businesses that will enable women to work from their homes or start flexible businesses, as many of them are single mothers and are the sole caretakers for their families. Women who receive this type of loan also receive training on entrepreneurship, business management and budgeting.
