A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy balanced feed for her animals.


San Francisco Group's story

The "San Francisco" communal bank was formed by bringing together several neighbors in the city of Santaní. All the members of the group are self-employed, and carry out activities such as raising and selling of animals. The members created a very close-knit group, able to jointly undertake activities that strengthen their partnership.

Cornelia belongs to the group, and she tells us that she raises and sells animals such as pigs, chickens, cows, and others. She says she has several customers who buy animals from her, which are later sold for slaughter. The work she does is very hard, and requires not only physical, but also mental effort.

She is applying for the loan in order to buy balanced feed for her animals, as she doesn't want them to lack food. Cornelia is very grateful to get this opportunity for progress.
