A loan of $950 helped to buy turkeys.


Antonieta Graciela's story

Antonieta is a member of the Capulí Communal Bank (Capulí is a kind of cherry tree).

She is 43 years old and works selling chickens and by-products at the market. She is the mother of 4 children. She remembers that in order to enter the Finca institution it took a lot of courage before she made a preliminary visit and later to save at the newly opened bank. She is very happy because all this time that she has been a member she could obtain her goals and she acquired many things such as freezers, display cases, and electronic scales. Many members at times wanted to quit but she encouraged them not to do it because all of them can get ahead the same as her. She loves the training sessions and the savings help her to be able to set goals and keep them.

She is going to use this loan to buy turkeys.
