A loan helped a member to buy seeds to sow crops and sell.


Dúo Estrellas De San Mateo Group's story

Maria Candelaria continues being the leader. She has spent several years in planting and agriculture. On this occasion, she wants to sow green beans and carrots. She is currently picking the final harvests of lettuce, and this leaves her land empty to start a new crop, also making the most of the rainy season.

Alongside her husband and children, she has managed to go far. Every day, they get up early to see how their crops are going. She is a hard-working and very responsible woman in her repayments. Thanks to her business, she was able to help her husband with the household expenses.

In this group: Maria Candelaria, Vilma Araceli
