A loan of $1,800 helped a member tp buy a dairy cow in order to increase milk production.

Collanas Group's story

The Collanas communal bank is comprised of three people who are looking for the same outcome, which is to triumph and to get their families’ ahead. Silvia is the president of this group because she is an unpretentious, humble, respectful, and cooperative person. Silvia is the girl in the picture with the lilac jacket.

Silvia works with her husband and other family members raising dairy cows. She has been in this business for three years. Before that Silvia took care of her mother’s animals. However, little by little, she has been buying her own cows, and she is able to devote herself to milk production.

Like in all businesses, the clientele is increasing. Silvia needs to increase her production. That is why she requested a loan from Fodemi. She will use the loan to buy a dairy cow in order to increase the milk production.

Silvia dreams that her family continues to be united, that her quality of life improves, and that she will soon be able to build her own house.

In this group: Silvia Maribel, Franklin Ivan, Alicia Piedad
