    Learn More
    Mrs. Paula De la Cruz Arratia is 40 years old, married, and has three children that go to school. Her husband is a bricklayer and works for a construction company. Their oldest child goes to high school and the other two are in elementary school. She lives with her family in a rented house. Paula is a homemaker and raises animals to make a little extra money. She asked for a loan from World Vision in order to buy a lamb and small chickens to raise and sell. This way she will be able to make some money to help her husband with the household expenses. The difficulty is that the chickens get sick easily due to abrupt changes in climate. They are purchased when they are small and they need warmth to grow, so a sudden cold wave really affects them and they can die quickly. The time that it takes to raise them is also a challenge. Paula’s business is beneficial for her children in school, since she wants to buy their clothes, supplies, and to pay for their bus fare. She wants to continue with her business, and her goal is to always have animals to be able to sell them when necessary. She says that they will be helpful when things get tight or in case of an emergency. Paula plans to invest the profits she makes back into buying more animals, and to support her husband with the daily expenses and their children's education.
