Banco Mujer Creciendo Juntas Group's story

Mónica is a young woman just 21 years old. She is the mother of a 2-year old son and has been living with her partner for four years. Mónica and her husband work hard to help their family get ahead. Her husband works on a pineapple farm as a farmhand and receives a very low salary. Mónica raises chickens to help with the household expenses. This is her third loan, and the previous ones have been a great help. They allowed her to start up and strengthen her business. She currently has a considerable number of chickens, and she is going to delve into raising pigs. Her investment plan is to purchase the animals, animal feed, vitamins, concentrated feed and other items. This very determined woman is looking to improve her quality of life and that of her family. Her dream is to continue her studies and later, to give her son an education. Eight members, together with Mónica, make up the communal bank "Banco Mujer Creciendo Juntas: (Women Growing Together Bank). Their livelihoods come from agriculture and raising livestock.
