The Women’S Bank Of The Sixth Of May (Banco Mujer Seis De Mayo) 2 Group's story

The Sixth of May Women’s Bank (Banco Mujer Seis De Mayo) 2 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 bread-making 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 ingredients and raw materials necessary to bread-making such as flour. Additionally, this loan will 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. The women who produce bread have the goal of one day owning a bakery. The women involved in animal rearing hope to use this loan to increase their poultry sales.
For the women engaged in bread-making, a difficulty has been high costs for raw materials. 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.

In this group: Marlene, Teresa, Dinorah, Mayra
