Banco Mujer Las Freasis Group's story

Doña Esperanza is the president of the Banco Mujer Las Freasis group. She has a lot of experience in this role, because she has done it for a number of years. This woman of 55 is married and is the mother of two children, both adults. She and her husband have a little plot of land, which a social welfare institution granted them, where they develop agricultural activities such as farming and raising pigs, which is what Doña Esperanza does. After receiving four loans, she has been able to expand her raising of pigs, and with this loan she wants to make some improvements in the pens where she has the animals. The loans have been a great help for her and have allowed her to help her husband with the family expenses, as well as economically helping her children and grandchildren.

With Doña Esperanza are 5 more members who are going to invest in farming and animal-raising activities.

In this group: Esperanza, Alejandra, Irene, Sara, María, Antonia
