A loan of $2,825 helped a member to buy agricultural supplies.


El Pino Palajachuj Group's story

Maria Cristina is married and 22. She finished three years of elementary school and has a son, who is too young to be in school. She farms, a trade she began by helping her family who have worked the land for many years. She now has seven years of experience and also has the support of her husband, who also is a farmer.

She organized a communal bank to apply for a loan, which she will use to buy agricultural supplies such as fertilizer, seeds, and fumigants for her harvest. She hopes to have her own capital soon and to see her business grow each day. The other group members are farmers, artisans, and merchants.
