Mujeres De Chajabal Group's story

Lidia J. is 31 years old, married, and completed a fifth graD. education. She has three children, two boys and one girl. Her husband makes and sells t-shirts and she works in this activity as well. They have been manufacturing and delivering in quantity and have 10 years experience doing this. In this way they are able to generate an income to cover the family expenses.

With a desire to get ahead, lots of enthusiasm, and with the help of some neighbors, they formed a group so that they could request a loan. The communal bank is called, “Mujeres D. Chajabal” (Women of Chajabal). The name was selected by all of the group’s members, taking into account the name of their neighborhood.

The communal bank has 10 members who are involved in different activities. Among them are: t-shirt making, raising livestock, the sale of daily consumables, and typical clothing. Lidia will use the money from this loan to buy supplies for making t-shirts, and in this way be able to increase her business. In this way she will be able to increase her income and improve her own and her family's living conditions.

In this group: Lidia, Lucia, María Andrea, Vicenta Paulina, María Angela, Antonia Josefina, María, Isabel Ermitaña, María, Fidelia Magdalena
