Independientes Group's story

The members of the Independientes [‘Independents’] group chose their group name because they are all women who are becoming independent in order to contribute to their household income.

Rosaria is married to Jesús and has three children, all of them married. They live in the community of Llano Grande. Rosaria is asking for a loan so she can purchase ingredients for making bread. She has made bread professionally for a year and eight months now, and says it is going well, since she has managed to improve her income a little bit. Rosaria got involved in this activity because she wanted to help her husband with the household income and meeting the family’s basic needs, and so she decided to earn money by selling bread. Her biggest desire is to keep working in her small business, and with support from the loan she hopes to carry on as long as God gives her life.

The other members of the group are: Iddai, who will purchase pigs to fatten and then sell; and Esther, who will purchase merchandise in order to re-stock her grocery store.

In this group: Iddai, Rosaria, Esther
