Grupo Yoxaja Agosto 2014 Group's story

Magdalena is 34 years old. She is an entrepreneurial woman, determined to be able to achieve in life. She does not let herself be defeated by the obstacles that life presents her with, but she attains all her thoughts and dreams. She has four children to support. The oldest is already married and has his own family, and the three younger ones are excellent students in the school in their community. (Magdalena is the first one from left to right and is wearing a white blouse.) She obtains economic income through the production of bananas in the community where she lives. Her parents taught her this work 25 years ago. She sells her product in the market and in the surroundings of her community, and thus has an economic income to improve the living conditions of her family. The use that she will give to the loan is to maintain the banana planting, since for her it is of great importance that her banana plants produce fruit of first quality and thus not lose the customers that she has. She is a good example in her community, and it is because of this that a group of women has decided to set up businesses alongside her and thus improve the living conditions of their families. One of her great aspirations is to plant more banana plants and see her children grow in the field of education and become professionals in life.
