Las Marías Group's story

The “Las Marías” women’s committee was formed on June 10, 2008 thanks to the group’s President, Mrs. Mary B., who had participated previously in another group and decided to start her own. She herself contacted the adviser and managed to get 17 women together who are now comfortably working in their 8th cycle in a unified and mutually supportive way.

Mary sells milk. She has two little cows with which she tries to support her humble family. This is why she needs a loan to buy another cow to increase income and move her family out of poverty.

All of them undertake activities to generate income; they help each other mutually to reach common objectives. They participate actively in weekly meetings and they have an impeccable mutually supportive work.

In this group: Mary , Maria Del Rocio, Felicita, Delia, Antonia, Patrocinia, Primitiva, Lucia, Nathalia, Ruth, Natividad, Maria Victoria, Noelia
