Guadalupe Del Carmen
The “Quiroga” communal bank meets every two weeks in Quiroga Parish in the city of Calceta, a place where its residents are for the most part farmers and raise livestock and sell their production.

We met Guadalupe, 45, here. She has spouse and five children, two of them already adults. One of them is going to university and the younger ones are in high school. Her husband is a radio technician.

She has a small farm at her parents’ house which is where she and her family live. She raises chickens there. She tells us that she buys 100 to 200 chicks per season. She buys them when they are small from an incubator in Calceta and keeps them for a period of time of two to three months and then when they are ready she delivers them to stores or sells them by the pound near her house to neighbors and close friends. She works every day about two hours daily on her various chores.

She will use this loan to buy chicks, feed and medicine for them so that they will develop well. She’s been in the communal bank for seven years and she likes the loans because she can finance her business with them when she doesn’t have any money. Her dream is to have a house of her own.
