San Rafael Group's story

The group named “San Rafael” is in its second loan cycle as part of the Women’s Committee Program. All of them are working with the program so that they can help one another get ahead. The members are taking a poverty elimination survey, which helps them become familiar with their financial situation. Several of these women are below the poverty line. In other words, their incomes are very low.

One of these women is Sra. Rosalina. Her latest survey demonstrated that she was at a poverty level within Level 1, which indicates that her income is very low. The work she does includes raising animals at home which she can sell. It should be pointed out that her work and her efforts will help improve her financial situation and that of her family. Rosalina is a person who wants to work, grow, and move forward.

She is requesting a loan so that she can buy more animals such as pigs, chickens, turkeys, and other livestock. This will help her follow through with her business plan to improve her income.

In this group: Aurelia, Francisca, Yanina, Marlene, Wilma, Geronima, Bernarda, Fermina, Claudelina, Estelvina, Maria, Lorenza, Rosalina, Carmen, Sonia, Gabriela, Maria*, Maria*
