C 7820 Coopa-Ugajoc Group's story

Venantie is the President of C 7820 COOPA-UGAJOC group and she has three children. She is well organized in her life and that is why the other members have nominated her as a leader. She is a farmer and she is engaged in farming rice.

Venantie is requesting a loan to purchase more fertilizer and seeds to use in the field and to pay employees. She hopes that through this project, people in the community can benefit by getting jobs because now she has two employees in her business. Venantie and her group are happy because they are helping their husbands earn a living.

This is her 14th year of experience in this sector and she is doing well. Since she started using loans, her life condition has changed and she can get all the basic needs. With any profits, Venantie will be able to educate all her children. This is an agriculture loan and she will pay the interest rate monthly then after harvest, she will pay the principal in a balloon payment. In the picture, Venantie has raised her hand.
