A loan helped to purchase more bags of coconut to process and extract the oil.

Good Mother Group's story

Cecilia is 48 years old. She is married with two children. Currently, all her children are in school. She sells coconut oil, the business which is her source of livelihood. She has been selling coconut oil for 13 years to support her family. Due to lack of adequate funds she is unable to buy more coconut to process and extract the oil. With this loan, she wants to buy more bags of coconut. She hopes to use part of her profit to support her kids in school and also build her house. Cecilia is a member of a community group called Good Mothers Group. In this group, members guarantee and support one another to repay their loans.
