A loan of $700 helped a member working capital.


Comango Group's story

Catarina is married, 33 years old and didn't have the opportunity to go to school. She has six children, two who are in school. She makes a living in agriculture, raising livestock with the help of her husband, who is a merchant. She decided to unite with three fellow livestock raisers to form a group to request a loan, which they plan to use to purchase cattle to later sell for a gain on their investment. Catarina has 10 years' experience raising livestock. She hopes to increase the profits for herself and her fellow group members so they can improve their living conditions.
