A loan of $6,300 helped a member to purchase pigs and animal feed/nutrients.

The Women´s Bank Of Forging Goals And Dreams Group's story

At the end of the previous loan the members of "Banco Mujer Forjando Sueños y Metas" (Women's Bank of Forging Goals and Dreams) had expanded their business by increasing the number of bred pigs. They also had the opportunity of receiving some training workshops in motivational tools for successful women in business (combining the subjects of women, business and family). The training was conducted by a university student who offered these trainings within her practical volunteering activities in the framework of her studies. After the training sessions the microfinance institution Fundación Mujer set up groups of borrowers, and this group stands out because it is particularly well organized and responsible. Right now the group has added two new members from Banco Mujer, who had not applied for previous loans. Each member will receive 400,000 colones, which they will invest in the purchase of pigs and needed supplies to breed them. This group is a clear demonstration of the benefits that women from rural areas in the province of San José can achieve.

In this group: Emma, Flora , Nidia , Luzmilda, Vilma, Karina, Sandra , Martha*
