Banco Mujer La Amistad Group's story

Priscilla is a 19 year old young woman. She has a son who is almost two months old. She lives with him and her life partner. She completed high school, but she wishes to continue her education. She does not have the resources to continue. Therefore, she wants to start a small business to help her life partner with the household expenses and to finish her higher education.

She sees the opportunity to do so with Fundación Mujer. This is the first loan that she has requested. She will use the money in raising and selling pigs. She learned about the services of the organization through colleagues in Banco Mujer.

The business activity that she is going to develop is pig farming. She says that she has help from her life partner and from her mother-in-law, who has a lot of experience taking care of animals. Priscilla knows that she needs to organize her work schedule very well because she has to take care of her very small child.

She has a lot of dreams and goals that she would like to fulfill. Among them are to improve her quality of life and that of her family, to increase the household income, and to come to be a very successful professional. She is sure that the best way to achieve these is the good administration of the finances.

Irene is next to Priscilla. She is her colleague with the loan. She will also invest in pig farming.
