Kokuere Group's story

The Kokuere group is in its first cycle of the women's communal bank programme. They are currently carrying out a survey aimed at eliminating poverty, as this is a way of helping them find out the financial situation of the members. Soraida, one of the group's members, makes and sells food items and believes that she is successful in what she does because she has a very large clientele and because, with the group's help, she always sells everything she makes. Her dream is to have a permanent grocery shop where she can sell her food. She is seeking this loan to buy supplies to make the items of food she sells, namely vegetables, meat, condiments, bread and cakes, amongst other things. She is very grateful for the chance she has been given.

In this group: Sixta, Mirtha, Gloria, Diana, Miguela, Juliana, Maria, Ingrid, Anatalia, Marciana, Limpia, Natividad, Genara, Soraida, Artemia, Inocencia, Adriana*
