A loan of $700 helped a member to purchase chickens and animal feed.


El Lirio Group's story

María Irene is married to Rodolfo, with whom she has three children that are under her care: Carlos Alejandro is 16 and in his second semester of high school, José Ignacio is 14 and in his third year of middle school, and Víctor de Jesús is 2 years old.

She is asking for this loan to purchase chickens and chicken feed that she will later sell in the same town. She has done this work for two years and a month, and she says it is going very well since she is earning an income from home. She started this business because she wanted to give the best to her children, so she had to do work that would earn an income. She and her husband work and they can have a better quality of life.

Her greatest wish is that with this loan and her business, she can have her savings to work and continue supporting her children so they can study and in time have a profession if that is what they want.

The group is made up of three women. The other two are Miriam, who bakes bread and is asking for a loan to purchase ingredients, and María de Jesús, who will purchase animal feed to raise pigs and later sell them.

In this group: Maria Irene, Mirian , Maria De Jesus
