A loan of $2,850 helped a member buy hogs to raise.


Flamingos I Group's story

This group is called “Flamingoes” and is located in the state of Puebla in Mexico. The group is comprised of 11 members, and this is the first time they request a loan. Florina is one of the members; she dedicates herself to selling hogs, a business she started 10 years ago.

She requests this loan to buy more animals to raise and later sell. She studied up to the third grade, is married and has 3 children. At the time of making this request for a loan, she is enthusiastic about the opportunity it gives her to grow her business and succeed.

She would like this loan to buy more animals since she already has commitments for them. This brings her more income, which will allow her to provide a better standard of living for her children and to offer them an education so they can enjoy brighter futures and meet any goals they set for themselves. Note that the woman who is difficult to see in the picture is named Alejandra.

In this group: Beatriz*, Enriqueta, Andrea, Alejandra, Maria Del Carmen, Ricarda, Juana, Esperanza, Florina, Eulalia, Nieves Anany
