Marangatu Rape Group's story

The Marangatu Rape group is in its fifth loan cycle. In a poverty-elimination survey, six of the members were below the poverty line, with an income much lower, almost in extreme poverty. One of the members is Lidia, who in her last survey was found to be below the poverty line. She is working arduously selling clothes, since she wants to be able to increase her income so she can better help her family and improve their lives. Thanks to the support she is receiving she is very hopeful about continuing to fight for her dreams. She is requesting the loan to purchase all kinds of clothes so she can continue with her sales and earn better income.

In this group: Luz, Lidia, Perla, Domiciana, Vianca, Fermina, Johana, Daniela, Nancy, Ema, Ana, Pastora*
