A loan of $925 helped a member capital for raising chickens.


Las Cruces Group's story

Nilda Marisel S. G. is married, 35 years old, and studied up to the second year of elementary school. She has 5 children, 3 of whom are studying.

Nilda is a housewife and her husband works as a laborer. Nilda requires her loan to buy chickens that she can fatten and then sell. With this in mind, she decided to get together some friends and neighbors to create a group so that they could request a loan to use as working capital. The members of this group carry out a range of business activities such as selling chickens, raising chickens and raising pigs. They hope that through their loans they will improve their living conditions and no longer remain itinerant as they have been up until now.

In this group: Nilda Marisel, Evangelina Andres, Maria Tomasa, Reina Maria , Ester
