1 De Mayo Group's story

The "1 de Mayo" (First of May) group is in its seventh loan cycle. All of the members work on their own. This is a very hardworking group from the city of Santaní, but members are from surrounding remote areas where there isn't access to these means. The majority of the members are rural women, and one of these is Sonia, who makes a living raising, selling or butchering farm animals, such as chickens, pigs, cows, goats and others. She says that it is demanding work because she has to be ever-mindful of her animals, but she also knows that this work can help her family. She is requesting the loan to purchase balanced feed for her animals, since in this way she can continuing raising her animals and generating income for her family.

In this group: Juana, Casilda, Urbana, Alcida, Daria, Donatila, Magdonia, Alicia, Delia, Justina, Sonia, Gregoria, Ignacia, Mariana, Mirian, Carmen*
