A loan of $2,025 helped a member to buy more livestock.

Eclipse Total Group's story

The 10-member Total Eclipse group is located in Mexico state. Yolanda is the group’s treasurer and for the past year has earned her living fattening pigs. She is seeking a loan to buy some more piglets which she will look after and fatten for five months, as she knows that in this period of time the piglets will increase in value allowing her to sell them for a considerable profit. With the money she earns she is planning to make some repairs to her house; she alone supports the household.

Yolanda is 24 years old and studied up to third year of high school. She is divorced and has a 5-year old son.

In this group: Leticia, Rocio, Yolanda, Raquel, Juana, Beatriz*, Nicolasa, Yolanda, Elia Araceli*, Adriana
