Bamco Mujer Hacia El Futuro Group's story

Denia is President of the “Mujer Hacia el Futuro” communal bank. She’s a woman with good leadership skills and drive to get ahead and help women in her community. She’s 49 years old and the mother of 7 children, all adults now. She lives just with her husband now. She is a merchant selling catalogue merchandise like perfume and cosmetics to help her husband cover household expenses since he works in a small banana farm he owns and income generated is low.

The loan will be of great help for the member since she will invest it in the purchase of merchandise since she has many pending orders this Christmas season and it will also allow her to increase family income and improve her and her husband’s quality of life. Her goal is that her business grows enough so that her husband can stop working on the banana plantation and help her with sales since he’s ill.

This group has a total of 11 members who carry out a variety of activities in animal husbandry and commerce and will be using their loans to buy merchandise and raw materials.

In this group: Denia, Edith, Ana, Mireya, Flor, Marjorie, Ana, María, Elizabeth , Selfida, Abigail
