Las Azucenas De Xenacoj Group's story

The Trust Bank, Las Azucenas de Xenacoj, is happy to participate in the Friendship Bridge program. It helps both the younger and older members of the Trust Bank to overcome obstacles and realize progress. They look forward to the increased revenue that they will earn in order to support their families.

Mayra is a single, 19-year-old woman with seven siblings. She is a first-year nursing student and looks forward to a successful nursing career. As her family does not have the financial resources to fund her education, Myra is requesting a loan from Friendship Bridge for her textile business. She will use her loan to purchase yarn and thread to create beautiful pieces to sell. In this way, she can take care of her educational expenses and any additional ones as well.

Mayra looks forward to earning her nursing degree. She is most aware of the need for medical personnel in her community, both in small clinics and health centers. As she speaks both Spanish and her local Mayan dialect, she feels that she will be an asset to the people whom she will serve. She looks forward to serving her patients with understanding and compassion. Mayra will work at her business during the week and has scheduled her nursing classes over the weekends.

Mayra and the rest of the ladies of Las Azucenas de Xenacoj, are so pleased and excited to receive a microloan. With this special opportunity, they will be able to improve their own lives and the lives of their family members. The community will progress, as well. Mayra will play a significant role in the future of the town.
