Grupo Agrícola Caserio Xexac 4 Group's story

Maria is 35 years old, married, and has an 8 year old son that studies in the small school in their community. This small family lives in a community named Xexac. Maria (the first from left to right in this picture) is a very hardworking woman and she loves the activity that she inherited from her parents and she feels useful in her community. In order to generate earnings, Maria now dedicates herself to the sale of bananas. She selected this activity because where she lives produces many bananas. In addition to selling bananas, she also plants and harvests bananas because the place she comes from is warm and is known as the land of the fruits. In order for Maria to have a good harvest, it's necessary to provide maintenance to the seeds. It's for this reason she requests a loan so that she can buy supplies and pay the necessary labor costs. This loan that Maria requests will be a group loan. The advantage is that everyone supports each other in seeking security. Maria concludes that group loans are a form of seeking the common good. Maria's aspiration is that with her earnings she can buy more seeds and continue increasing her banana plantations.
