The Women´s Bank Of The Sixth Of May (Banco Mujer Seis De Mayo) Group's story

The Sixth of May Women’s Bank (Banco Mujer Seis De Mayo) is a group of women from San Martin, Limón; a rural region located near the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. The women of this group are engaged in productive activities including retail sales and the rearing and selling of livestock (poultry products).

This loan will be used by the group members to further the development of their individual productive activities. Specifically, the money will be used to finance the purchase of retail products (which will be sold at a later date) such as clothing, bags, shoes, jewellery and underwear. This loan will also be used to purchase livestock (chickens) and animal feed.

San Martin is a rural region with few employment opportunities. As a result, the women of this group have taken it upon themselves to create work. The members of this group have a desire to succeed in their businesses and to provide a better standard of living for themselves and their families.

For the women engaged in sales, a difficulty they have faced is fluctuating market prices for their products. Likewise, individuals involved in the rearing and sale of chickens have encountered obstacles such as high prices for animal feed and low market prices for poultry products.

Aidali G. Aporta is the president of this group. This will be her first loan with Fundación Mujer. Aidali makes her living by selling various products from door to door in her community. She will use this loan to puchase products to be sold at a later date at a profitable price.

In this group: Aidali, Yendri, Keyler, Cinthia , Xinia, Carmen
