Banco Mujer Mujeres En Acción Group's story

The group is composed of 11 members, all of which are hard-working women with a lot of dreams and goals yet to fulfill. Their ages range from 26 up to 60 years of age. The majority of its members only completed elementary education and have dedicated themselves to agricultural activities in order to help their families, who in most cases, is the only source of income for the household. This is the first loan from Banco Mujer Mujeres En Accion (Women's Comunal Bank Women in Action) and they heard of the services of Fundacion Mujer thanks to the current treasurer, Emilce Bermudez who had been in a comunal group for more than 4 years.

The members will invest the loan in the purchase of pigs, chickens, calves, feed, concentrates, fertilizers, chemicals and other inputs to raise livestock and grow cocoa. The members have many years experience in their productive activities but do not have the working capital to grow their businesses; and if we add to these struggles the high cost of raw materials, product transportation costs, lack of a stable market, and the low prices in which they manage to sell their products, all of these obstacles are what they have to face day-to-day. This is why the loan is of great help for all of the entrepreneurs who make up Banco Mujer.
The group has set forth very important objectives such as: growing their business, becoming self-sufficient, continuing their education, and many more. This loan is the first step to reach those objectives.

In this group: Marileth, Emilce, Iris, Leonor, Cinthya, Marianela, María, Rosa, Flor, Xinia, María Del Carmen
