A loan of $4,450 helped a member to buy barley and bran.

Muyurina Group's story

The Muyurina communal bank is starting its 20th cycle with 15 members. María, 28, is group President. She is married and has a two-year-old daughter. She raises guinea pigs, chickens and pigs and also farms vegetables like, cabbage, lettuce and spinach, among others.

The loan that María is requesting will be used to buy barley for her guinea pigs and bran for her pigs. María learned how to raise small farm animals and farming from her parents. Now, she works independently with her husband’s help. She sells her animals, which are in high demand, in Muyurina’s markets and she sells the vegetables she grows in the Nery García wholesale market.

María has been with Finca for two cycles and she enjoys the meetings very much because she has learned how to save and work in them. Her dream is to have a guinea pig farm and to be able to build her own house.

In this group: Maria, Lidia, Felix, Clementina, Maria Virginia, Haydee, Hector Luis, Rosa Natividad, Julia Luz, Pamela, Marlene, Edwin, Gloria Esther, Raquel, Zulema
