Tajy Poty Group's story

This is the "Tajy Poty" group and it is on its eleventh cycle in the women's committee programme. Here all the members work and help each other to move forward. The women are undergoing the poverty elimination survey, which helps to identify each entrepreneur's income. In this group no member is living under the poverty line but still they must put in the effort so that their incomes do not fall.

The president of the group is Juana. Juana's last survey produced a very good result and she is unstoppable in her work every day as she overcomes any obstacles that she faces. It should also be mentioned that, thanks to her efforts, she now has her own fruit selling business. Before she was a street vendor but Juana now sells out of her own home. Juana is very hard-working and always puts in the effort to move forward in life.

Juana is applying for this loan to buy more seasonal fruits as there is a lot of demand. The loan will help Juana to put her business plan into action, which will help increase her income and so improve her family's quality of life.

In this group: Juana, Edith, Amada, Leonida, Cecilia, Laura, Alejandra*, Venancia, Liz, Gladys*, Laura, María, Juana*, Maria, Olga
