A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy merchandise.


Racana Group's story

Mrs. Agustina García González is single and illiterate. She sells firewood. She’s had this business for 10 years. With the enthusiasm and help of several neighbors they organized a group to solicit funds. The group is called “Rácana.” It has six members who are involved in a variety of activities among which we can mention the following: raising animals, growing tomatoes, fruit, vegetable and firewood sales.

She will use the loan to buy merchandise and increase her capital as well as volume of sales. One of the difficulties with being the business owner is the lack of capital but, with help from her children, she’s managed to get ahead and she hopes the business will be still larger and more productive with the help from the loan requested from ASDIR.

In this group: Guadalupe, Carmen, Agustina , Maria Angelina, Francisca , Dominga Acabal
