Barrio Mutut Group's story

Laureano Díaz Pérez lives in the pretty town of Bochil. He is married to Manuela Días Sánchez, with whom he has five children, now grown and married. Laureano is a member of the group Mutut, a name that is meaningful to the members because it is name of the mate tree in their native language.

He is requesting a loan for his business buying and selling livestock. Laureano has been in this business for ten years and is earning good income from it. He hopes to expand his business with this loan and be able to build a better life for his family.

Laureano began this business at the same time as several of his friends. They work together and support each other, performing better than if they were working alone. Laureano hopes to use this loan to build his business and to continue working for as long as God gives him life.

The other members of the group are: Flor de María (owns a grocery store), Alejandra Pérez (buys and sells blankets), José Hernández (sells livestock), Vicenta Díaz (dyes and sells blankets), and Laura Días (buys and sells blankets). With this loan, the group members hope to increase their business sales.

In this group: Laureano, Flor De Maria, Alejandra , Jose, Vicenta , Laura
