Virgen De La Misericordia Group's story

The Virgen de la Misericordia Communal Bank is an excellent group, which was formed on May 13th, 2010. It is comprised of 20 women from the city of Villeta. This group formed thanks to Silvia D.. Silvia approached the advisor at a loan renewal meeting in her area to find out more about the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women Program. Silvia was very enthusiastic and eager to be able to work in this program. They are now very happily working in their second cycle with the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women Program.

Silvia has a henhouse that is very well established. She raises and fattens chicks in order to sell them. She has worked in this field for quite a while. Taking into account the consumption of poultry instead of beef due to the economy, she now has good, fixed customers.

She wishes to expand her business by purchasing more chicks. She will also purchase balanced feed and equipment to provide for the chicks. This way her income will increase, and her animal production will keep growing.

In this group: Silvia , Marina, Raquel , Liz, Mireya, Bonifacia, Mirna, Mirian, Mary, Aurelia, Mirian, Estela, Celedonia, Tomasa, Mirna, Cinthia, Leonarda, Miguela, Diana, Gladys
