A loan of $800 helped a member to buy bean and potato seeds to sow and then later sell.


La Lindera Group's story

'La Lindera' is a group of three women who want to be successful in life. The group's president is María because she is a sociable, calm, friendly and responsible person. María is 34 years old, married, and has three children. She lives with her children in Latacunga, in Cotopaxi province.

In common with her fellow group members, María is a farmer. This is the first time that her group has worked with Fodemi. They will invest this loan in buying bean and potato seeds. When they harvest their crops, they will sell them and thereby make good income which will help them to cover their household expenses and improve their quality of life.

María's dream is to have sales premises from which she can sell her produce.

In this group: María Bertha, María Felicidad, Blanca Marlene
