A loan of $2,125 helped a member to purchase pigs and chickens.

Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

Doña Vicenta L. L. is 55 and married. She never had the opportunity to study. She has 6 children, none of whom are in school. She takes care of the house and also raises farmyard animals. She has raised pigs and chickens for 6 years, starting her business with just chickens. She wants to increase her working capital, and for this reason she decided to organize a group with the goal of requesting a loan. That way she can purchase more pigs and chickens, and increase her production. The other members of the communal bank do a variety of different work, including raising animals, selling kitchen utensils, selling firewood, and running a store selling basic goods. They hope to improve their businesses and their quality of life with the loan they are requesting.

In this group: Juana, Juliana, Vicenta, Carmelina, Maria Dolores, Noemi Dominga, Rosa Maria, Felipa, Faustina, Santos Juliana
