Xetrubala Dos Group's story

Carmen is 35 years old and was not fortunate enough to go to school. She raises her five children on her own. One of them is a student. She raises animals for a living, having started out with chickens and hens ten years ago. Her husband is a mason and helps her financially. Carmen put together a group to ask for a loan that she will use to buy pigs and a cow. She wants her barn to have more animals and grow in order to increase her sales. The other members of the group also raise animals. One of the women in the photo was originally in the group but she did not qualify for the loan.

In this group: Carmen , Victoria , Margarita , Dominga
