A loan of $2,500 helped a member to pay for labor to plow the small farm to plant new crops.


La Alegria Group's story

The committee La Alegria, or ‘happiness,’ was formed when several women from the San Isidro locality in Santani came together.

All the members cultivate agricultural products.

The members formed a very united group, one capable of accomplishing activities together that strengthen this committee. They are already in their seventh loan cycle.

Ms. Priscila, for example, harvests and plants her small farm, and now that planting time is coming closer, she needs labor to plow the land. She is requesting the loan to be able to pay for this labor so she can work on her farm again.

In this group: Maria Soledad, Ana, Baldomera, Natalia, Juliana, Rosalba, Silvia, Inocencia, Veronica*, Priscila, Viviana Cristina*
