A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy meat.


Jacha Taki Group's story

The "Jacha Taki" communal bank, comprised of eight members, is requesting its first loan through the Cascada center. The ladies have different businesses such as: butcher shop, corn and condiments sales, knitted jackets, macramé orders, hat manufacturer, seamstress, mattress maker, cement, brick and plaster sales, and neighborhood store.

The Jacha Taki community bank is governed by a board of directors with Mrs. Eugenia as their chairwoman.

Eugenia lives with her husband and two children. She began her business of selling beef some six months ago. She plans to use the loan to buy more meat. She runs her store out of her own home between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., and sometimes requires the help of her children. The income is used to help with household expenses and caring for her children.

When we asked Eugenia what she liked about Pro Women she responded by saying it was mainly the payment meeting.

In this group: Eugenia, Nora Elza, Elena, Fabiola, Roxana, Sofia, Nila, Emiliana
