Banco Mujer Damas De Fé Group's story

Leonor is one of the members of the "Banco Mujer Damas de Fé" communal bank. She is a woman of 48, and the mother of four children, who are all adults. She lives only with her husband and her father, who is elderly and needs a lot of care, as he is very ill.

For various family reasons, it has been very difficult for her to go out to work in order to help with the household expenses. That's why some time ago she started to raise pigs in her house, and sell them in her community.

This is the third loan Leonor is applying for, and the previous ones have allowed her to inject working capital into her small company, through the purchase of pigs, concentrates and vitamins. She knows how important the loans are for her business, and the opportunity they provide for generating income for her family, for self-improvement, and for improving quality.

In the group with Leonor are eight other members who are going to invest in farming and livestock raising.

In this group: Secundina , Yorleny , Carmen, Yahaira, Angela, Leonor*, Grace, Ester, Arelis
