A loan of $2,550 helped a member to purchase cattle feed.


Margaritas De San Antonio Group's story

The communal bank "Margaritas de San Antonio" will start their first loan cycle with Pro Mujer (Kiva Field Partner) as part of Centro Senkata. It is formed by eight members and it is directed by a board of directors, which is led by Olga. The businesses carried by the members of this communal bank are various, and among them are: potato farming, livestock farming, freeze-dried potatoes, and knitted crafts.

Olga indicates that this is the first loan cycle in which she works with Pro Mujer. She joined following an invitation by a promoter. She currently has a business raising cattle and she has had this business for many years. She learned the business from her mother.

The loan that she will take is to increase her capital, to purchase feed for her cattle. She will make her purchases in Ceja and she will later distribute the product among her cattle. This form of work helps her to generate an income to support her family in whatever possible. She is married and she has four children.

When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the savings program.
