A loan helped a member to buy natural medicines to sell.


Ita Poty Group's story

This committee includes 17 women. They are heads of household who work hard to attain a better quality of life and who hope to want for nothing.

Hermes is one of these women. She sells natural medicines door to door and says that, though her work is modest, she is proud of what she does because she can help her family and slowly progress this way. Hermes decided to join the group because she considered it an opportunity to achieve her goals and better herself.

She is requesting this loan to buy natural remedies to sell so she can continue working and meeting her customers' demands.
