La Campanita Group's story

This communal bank is called "La Campanita" (The Little Bell). It is located in the State of Mexico. The group is of made up of ten members. Sra. Angela is a member of the group. She attended primary school and is a homemaker. She has 3 children, two daughters and one son. For the last three years, she has made her living raising and selling chickens, and for the last year and a half she has raised chickens. She tells us that thanks to what she has invested in her chicken business, she was able to start building a house, which is not yet finished. She hopes that with the loan she will be able to invest more, since this is the season for high sales. Sra. Angela makes her sales within her community and some people come from nearby communities to purchase from her in her home. Sra. Angela says that the success of her business is due to the good prices she offers and because she always tries to have a sufficient quantity of chickens on hand so as to not make a bad impression on her customers. Sra. Angela is requesting the loan to purchase corn and feed for the chickens. At the time that she requested the loan, Sra. Angela was feeling excited. She plans to offer her daughters the education that she never had so they can have a better quality of life and be self-sufficient.
