A loan of $2,325 helped a member to purchase more hens to raise and sell, as well as feed for the pigs.

San Miguel Group's story

The group, San Miguel, was formed thanks to various friends and neighbors in the city of Santani. These women all take care of families, and shared the goal of generating income to help support their families. They are all working enthusiastically within the program, "enterprising women" within the foundation and they want to reach the highest level they can.

One of these women is Lourdes, who thanks to her hard work and sacrifice has been able to help improve the quality of life for her family. Lourdes raises pigs and hens, which has helped generate income for the daily household expenses. She says her work is very hard but she would like to continue growing her business. Her portion of the loan will be used to buy small hens to raise and sell, and to purchase feed for her pigs.
