A loan of $975 helped a member to buy ingredients to make tamales.


Amanecer Group's story

Mrs. Magdalena lives in a beautiful town that boasts a large lagoon that many people come to visit. She is married to Mr. Bulmaro and they have a son still in their care.

She is a homemaker requesting a loan to buy ingredients such as oil, meat, corn, and banana leaves to make tamales. She has been in this activity for a year and eight months and says business is going well and producing a good profit.

The reason she got involved in the business was to provide for her family and help her husband cover the household expenses.

What she wants most through her work is to increase income so she can help her son develop and get a good education and become a professional.

The members of the group are: Mrs. Brigada who will use the loan to buy and sell chicken, Mrs. Candelaria who will use the loan to buy and sell corn, Mrs. Inés who will buy coffee to grind and sell, and Mrs. Zoraida who will buy natural medicines.

In this group: Brijida , Candelaria, Ines Romana, Soraida, Magdalena
