A loan of $1,700 helped a member to buy vegetable seeds and to prepare the land.


Choquinom Group's story

Doña Isabel is 38 and didn't have the opportunity to go to school. She has 7 children, all of whom are in school. She does work around the house and also works in agriculture, growing vegetables. She has done this work for 6 years. She started with only a small amount of land, and now she wants to increase her production.

Since then, they have organized a group to request a loan that will serve as working capital to prepare land for their crops, to buy seeds, and to increase the production of vegetables. She has the support of her husband, who also works in agriculture. The other members of the group also work in agriculture, growing vegetables and raising cattle. They hope that, with the investment they make, they can improve their living conditions.

In this group: Isabel , Rosa , Juana , Catarina , Luciano
