A loan helped to buy fresh vegetables to sell.

Plantacion Group's story

The group named “Plantación” is in its first loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. The members consist of 15 women who are neighbors and friends from the same area. They work on behalf of their households at their own businesses or income-generating activities. They do everything they can to help their families get ahead.

One of the members is Elizabeth, who sells vegetables for a living. She says that her work gives her the means to help her family so that they can avoid experiencing any hardships. Elizabeth states that she seeks to improve her business, so she is doing everything she can to work hard to accomplish her goals.

She is requesting a loan to buy fresh vegetables to sell. This will allow her to continue her sales and satisfy her customers as before.
