Joaju Group's story

A few women coming from the town of Santaní have joined forces to form the “Joaju” Committee. They all work together in the town of Santaní and for this reason they have chosen to name the group Joaju, meaning “union”. They all engage in breeding and selling animals, an activity thanks to which they help providing for their children and relatives. It is a very hard job, but they do it for the wellbeing of their families. Felicia is the president, and she is requesting a loan to buy balanced feed for her animals, thus succeeding in feeding them.
