A loan helped a member to buy sheep.


Lider Group's story

The “Lider” communal bank will begin its fifth cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Senkata Focal Center. It is made up of eight members and is led by a board of directors, of which Maria is the president.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-business women, including Maria. She has a business selling sheep. She says that she learned this business from her family several years ago.

The loan she will take out will be to increase her capital by buying sheep. She will acquire them from sellers in her community. Later she will use them for breeding. This work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially, since she is married and has six children.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Olga , Lourdes , Benita, Ana, Betalia , Irene, Salome
