Banco Mujer Luz De Esperanza Group's story

Ana is the president of the 'Luz de Esperanza' (Light of Hope) Women's Bank. She is 45 years old and the mother of six children though she currently only lives with two of them: a daughter of 18 and a son who is 8. She also lives with her husband.

Ana is a very hard-working woman who raises and fattens pigs for a living. She sees Fundación Mujer's loans as an opportunity to make progress and considers them to be a great help for the micro-businesswomen in her group.

This is the second loan that Ana has requested and she will invest it in buying pigs, concentrated feed, vitamins and antiparasitics.

As a good leader, Ana has well-defined goals, one of which is to grow her business so that she has a large production of pigs. Another of her main goals is for all the members of her group to help each other, work as a team and be supportive of each other through their Women's Bank.

It is important to note that this group initially had 9 clients, which is why there are three extra women in the photo. However, those three women decided to form their own group, so only 6 women will be investing in agricultural activities.

In this group: Ana , Gloria, Sara, Katherine, Yesenia, Anabelly
