A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy supplies to sow her banana crop.

Banco Mujer Fe En Cristo Group's story

Tatiana is the treasurer for Banco Mujer Fe en Cristo [Faith in Christ communal bank], a group with an extensive history. This young woman, 26, is a mother of two children whom she lives with along with her spouse.
She is a very hard working woman. In addition to having a micro business with her husband, she also works for the canton of Talamanca as an office worker. She took this job since the income generated from their banana crop was not sufficient to cover family expenses. Therefore, they decided she would work outside the home since it was easier for her to get a job thanks to having completed her high school education as well as some computer courses. Tatiana tends to her crop business when she returns from work, during holidays, or on weekends. When she is not there, her husband looks after the farm.

This is the third loan that she is requesting. This loan and the ones before it have been a great help because they allow her to invest in supplies to sow her crop.

There is one more member in addition to Tatiana who will also invest in agriculture.

In this group: Tatiana, Yahaira
