Mujeres Del Porvenir Group's story

Mujeres Del Porvenir is the name of a group made up of seven people, each of whom has a business with the aim of earning more and offering their families a better quality of life. The group's members are: Erika, who has a stationery store, Elvira, who sells shoes, Maribel, who sells candy, Flora, who sells costume jewelry, Elsa, who sells shoes, María Ynés, who raises pigs, and Rafaela, who raises pigs. This group is located in the community of El Porvenir and its people work in the fields. María Ynés is 54 years old. She only studied through the second grade and she is married to Máximo. She has been raising pigs for ten years. María Ynés decided to start this business because she wanted the opportunity to make her own money from her home without neglecting her husband. She tells us that she buys the pigs when they are only three months old, then she starts taking care of them and fattening them so that when they are big and fat she can sell them and make her profits. She tells us that she will use this loan to buy pigs and feed. In the future, she wants to use her earnings to make some improvements to her home and to have a better quality of life. This group sends greetings to the people who make their loans possible.

In this group: Erika , Elvira , Maribel , Flora , Elsa, María Ynés , Rafaela
