A loan of $900 helped a member to buy chicks and feed.


Banco Mujer Siquirritos Group's story

Virginia is one of the members of the “Siquirritos” communal bank. She’s 48 years old and the mother of three children, all adults. Only her youngest son still lives with her. She’s a single mother and head of household. She always strove very much to move her family forward and provide sustenance for her home.

She currently raises fowl; she raises chicks to sell and will use the loan to buy the animals and feed concentrate. This is her first loan and she has a strong wish for self-improvement and to have the income needed to care for her health and to have quality of life.

Two other women appear with Virginia whose activities are commerce and services.

In this group: Maricela, Virginia, Melissa
