Solidaria Mujer Azucareras Group's story

Mujer las Azucareras communal bank is established in the Atirro de Turrialba area. Their name is due to the fact that it is a sugar cane producing area. The group is comprised of three members. Marielos and her daughters, Shirley and Milena, are making this request to support their businesses. In order, they engage in business activities like a grocery store, dog grooming, and pastry making. They have invested previous individual loans from FM in their businesses. They have also had the opportunity to be trained and to improve their skills and abilities. This time they are looking to invest in the improvement of their businesses, which are different, and to support their families in this way. With a stable business, Milena, who has a one year old child, trains and grooms dogs. She learned this business activity in Mexico approximately two years ago. She visits her customers at their homes, where she trains their pets. She cares for them by doing things like bathing them, cutting hair, and deworming them. Her business is much requested in the area. She wants to invest in products for training the animals, in rubber items, and in special food for pets. The members of the Mujer las Azucareras communal bank have experience working in a group, selecting a board of directors, and creating rules for work. They have a market in an area with little commerce. However, there is the presence of the sugarcane industry where they conduct their businesses.
