A loan helped a member to buy corn, milk, beans, and make several firewood trips for the winter so she can go on making tortillas, cooked beans, and selling dairy products.

Las Tigresas Group's story

The Las Tigresas communal bank is made up of nine organized and responsible people. Their businesses are diverse: making and selling tortillas, firewood, cooked beans, making and selling bread, the sale of soft drinks, ice, milk, tricycle work, and the sale of used clothing.

Fany Lisseth, wearing a striped shirt with shorts, is 34 years old and is the group leader. She has been working with Pro Mujer and is a business fighter. Her partner uses a tricycle in his work and they have three children.

A new loan will allow her to buy corn, milk, beans, and make several firewood trips for the winter. With this, she will continue making tortillas, selling dairy products, and cooked beans.

Lift up the dreams and hopes of these fighting women, full of courage, to get ahead!
