A loan of $2,175 helped a member to buy feed for her farm animals.


Edjiwengatuwa Group's story

The communal bank Edjiwengatuwa is made up of 17 women who live in the same neighborhood. The members all work in the same industry raising animals. The members of the communal bank are humble and hardworking women who, thanks to the communal bank, have more knowledge of business practices because many of them didn’t know what to do. All of them have committed to give their best so that the communal bank can finish its first loan cycle in good standing and above all to improve the quality of life for each member.

Maribel works raising farm animals like cows, pigs, chickens, etc. To do that, she has to feed them good food every day in order to later sell the animals or their products, like milk, eggs, cheese, etc.

The loan will be used to buy feed for the animals.
