A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy domestic animals.


Arcoiris Group's story

Lilian Raquel is 45 years old and in a domestic partnership. She completed 3 years of primary school education and has 2 children who don't go to school. She buys, breeds and sells domestic animals and set up the business with family loans. It has been up and running for 10 years.

She has organized a group to request a loan, part of which she will use to buy more animals to raise and then sell. In the future she would like to see her business prosper with more animal pens than she has now. The other members of the group work doing the same thing and also sell everyday consumer products. Jovita Adelina isn't in the photo because she couldn't attend the meeting that day.

In this group: Lilian Raquel , Carmen , Robertina , Martita , Blanca Azucena , Hortensia , Jovita Adelina *, Rosalina Elizabeth, Maria Isabel
