4 De Octubre Group's story

This committee is in the 4th loan cycle of the program. It is made up of 10 ladies, who are all neighbors and well-known throughout the area. The members of this group, “4 de Octubre” [4th of October] are very close and they have an excellent payment record. They hope the group will continue progressing to the maximum level of the program “Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras” [Committee of Enterprising Women].

Edita is the president of this hardworking group and she says that through her cheese sales and chicken breeding she has managed to get ahead and help her family. Everyday Edita shows that with hard work and dedication it is possible to get ahead. She leads her friends by example.

She is requesting the loan to purchase cheese, which she will have in a quantity that will allow her to continue working and at the same time help her family.
