Heladia buys chickens by the crate, which carries between 200-300 chickens, and sells them to customers. With her loan, Heladia plans to buy more chickens to sell before the end of the month. One of Heldia’s biggest challenges is that she does not have enough money to buy more chickens. Selling more chickens will help her to secure a bigger income, which will help her to support her daughter’s schooling so that she can study math. Heladia hopes that her business will continue to grow and thrive so that someday she can buy or build four chicken coops and other materials necessary to raise chickens. She needs chicken coops because there are times of the year when chickens sell very well and she does not have the proper space to raise an increased amount of chickens. Right now, she only has room for three chicken coops, so she would like to expand her space to fit in a fourth one. According to Heladia, each chicken coop can store up to 2,000 chickens.
