A loan of $1,450 helped a member to buy animals and food for them.


8 De Diciembre Group's story

The "8 D. Diciembre" committee was formed on the initiative of Señora Raquel, who was very interested by the program. They are in their first lending cycle currently, with ten women. All of them work together to be able to develop themselves, not just financially, but also on a personal level. The goal of the committee is to learn the importance of working in a team within the group, with responsibility, honesty and communication.

Señora Raquel works raising and selling animals. She says that is is very self-sacrificing work, and that she gets up at a very early hour and works till very late. The care of the animals is a very complicated task as she must keep an eye on the animals, in every sense. She would like to be able to have a larger field in which she can have more animals.

She is requesting the loan for the purchase of more animals, and also food for them. She has high hopes for this loan, as it will be a great help to her.

In this group: Raquel, Maria, Rosalina, Elida, Celina, Carmen, Zulma, Fermina, Isabel, Lourdes
