Banco Mujer Las Laboriosas Group's story

Gloria is the president of the “Banco Mujer Las Laboriosas,” and, as she says, is a woman who puts forth lots of effort. She’s capable of completing any task and involves herself in many productive activities. At age 56, her age is not an impediment and she has all the energy she needs and many desires to improve her quality of life and live a dignified life. She has three children, but none live with her. They are married and have established their own homes. However, she is not alone. She’s been living with her husband for the past six year and she and her husband work shoulder to shoulder to move their farm ahead.

Gloria is a farmer and raises different good quality products that she sells to her neighbors within her community. This loan will be of great help and will allow her to invest in fertilizer, plastic to protect her crops, and other supplies necessary for the harvest.

This enterprising woman’s short term goal is to have a larger farm and increase her production with better crops.

There are seven other ladies from the same community [in the photograph] with Gloria, who also want to invest in activities such as raising poultry, pigs, and other businesses.

In this group: Gloria , Patricia, Celidey, Piedades, Rocio, Jasmina, Marta, Mayra
