Bellacili

This is Bellacili. That machine on the left is an egg incubator for 1000 eggs. Edupaz gave her a $80.000 peso loan ($8,000 dollars) to buy that incubator for her family’s chicken business. The business has been going very well, I saw a bunch of new chicks running around. But her husband was robbed yesterday. They robbed $23.000 pesos ($2,300 dollars) from him in the middle of the day, in the town plaza. Then they threw a bag in his face, saying “we don’t want your ****ing money!” just to mess with his head more (they had carefully cut pieces of newspaper into the size of bills and wrapped that in a handkerchief and put it in a bag). He was going to use that money to make some loan payments to Edupaz, and to buy materials for the chicken coop. Now they have to start from zero again.
