A loan of $900 helped a member to buy pigs, feed, and vitamins.


Banco Mujer Luz De Esperanza Group's story

Mónica is another of the members of Banco Mujer Luz de Esperanza. She is 50 years old, married, and has four children. She lives with her husband and her younger son. She is a very brave and hardworking woman. Her family has had to face many difficult situations, her husband is on disability retirement, and the pension he receives is very low. And this year she couldn't send her younger son to school for a lack of funds. Nevertheless, nothing discourages her, on the contrary she works even harder to get ahead.

This is the first loan she is asking for and she knows it's a great opportunity to develop her small business, which is raising pigs. She will invest the loan in buying animals, feed, and vitamins.
Mónica's main objective is to generate income to help her family, and give her younger son a basic education.
There are two women with Mónica who are also going to invest in agricultural activities.

In this group: Patricia, Xinia, Mónica
