A loan of $3,350 helped a member raising lambs.

Tiacaque Group's story

This group is called Tiacaque, and the name was chosen because the women live in the community of Tiacaque which means: the place where the water comes forth between the crags. It is located in Ixtlahuaca, México and is characterized by having a dam. The majority of the inhabitants raise lambs.

The group is made up of twelve memebers and it is the second time they are requesting a loan. One of the members of the group is called Rosario A. C. She is 33 years old and has an eighth grade education. She is a housewife and merchant. She says that her business is very important because it contributes to her family's expenses. She has two sons and one daughter. Rosario has been raising lambs for three years and is requesting the loan to strengthen her business. Her dedication has allowed her to be recognized by her customers for having high quality meat. The loan will help her buy food for the animals. She dreams of one day being able to increase the number of animals she has and in this way offer her children a professional career.
