Los Tillales (24 De Mayo) Group's story

In the 24 of Mayo parish, the humble people are dedicated to short-cycle agriculture (onions, green beans, tomatoes); raising farm birds and pigs; and to commerce in general.

The loan group includes 14 members, all of whom are women. They meet every 15 days in a member's house. The president of the group is Sandy. She is 29 years old, married, and has two children who are 8 years old and five months old; her husband is a police officer. They live in their own house.

Sandy is dedicated to selling a wide variety of household products from her house--including pots, plates, glasses, shoes, and clothing from catalogs. She is also dedicated to raising chickens in her house. She buys the chickens when they are small, and raises them for three months or until they are ready to sell. She sells to clients, as well as people and merchants that come to her house to buy her products. She sells the majority of her merchandise for cash, and she only sells to people who have been clients for years on credit; she collects from them weekly.

With this new loan, she will buy pots, plates, cutlery sets, crockery, sandals, shirts, etc. Her dream is to have a large store with a lot of merchandise, so that she can continue with her business and so that her family remains very healthy.
