A loan of $3,850 helped a member to purchase pigs and chickens.

Mujeres Alegres Group's story

Ana H. P. is a 45-year-old married woman who never had the opportunity to go to school. She has three children, two of whom are in school. She has been working as a housekeeper and raising animals for 12 years now. Ana began working of her own initiative because she wanted to improve her situation. She has the support of her husband, who makes fabric for a living.

Ana decided to organize a group in order to request a loan from ASDIR. This loan will allow the group to buy pigs and chickens which they will raise and then sell for a higher price once they are fully grown. The members of this group have different kinds of jobs including: selling sportswear, selling traditional clothing, working in a store which sells basic goods, making pants, sweatshirts and shoes, and raising pets. They would like to grow their business and earn more money.

In this group: Ana, Juliana Estela, Herlinda Isabel, Maria Eliza, Juana, Josefa, Rosario, Micaela Alejandrina, Carmen Paulina, Francisca Mariquita, Alicia, Isabel, Micaela Celidon, Vicenta Juana, Magdalena, Santos
