A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy animals and balanced feed.

Santa Lucia Group's story

The Santa Lucía group is in its first loan cycle in the women's committee program, in which they're learning to work together and help each other mutually through their work. They have done the poverty elimination survey that allows them to measure their income, which indicates that two of the members have a very low income.

Rumilda is one of them and her income is very low according to the survey. In spite of everything, she makes the effort to get ahead and improve her life and that of her family. She makes a living raising farm animals. She says it's very demanding because she has to be looking after the animals all the time. With her income she's giving her family what's within her reach.

She's requesting this loan to invest in buying farm animals as well as balanced feed to be able to continue with her job and improve her finances.

In this group: Rumilda, Margarita, Claudia, Alberta, Claudelina, Felicia, Patricia, Herminia, Maria, Ramona, Lilian, Ursulina
