Amistad Group's story

Ana P. is 32 years old and has a sixth graD. education. She has five children ranging in ages from 14 to 2. Her husband works as a mason and she raises livestock and also ice cream treats in the village school. She’s been doing this for five years and this provides her an income so that she can contribute to the household expenses.

With her enthusiasm, desire to get ahead, and the help of some of her neighbors and friends from an agricultural program, they formed a group so that they could apply for this loan. The name of their communal bank is “AMISTAD” (Friendship), and they decided on this name together. It is maD. up of 19 ladies who are involved in various business activities; among them are livestock, frozen treat sales, daily consumables, and clothing.

She will use the money from this loan to buy hogs so that she can increase her production and income. Her dream is to increase her production, but has not had the money to invest. This loan will allow her the opportunity to grow her business and her income, and help with her personal development and, most importantly, that of her family.
