A loan of $4,850 helped a member to buy milk to sell.

Las Marias Group's story

The "Las Marias" group is in its 14th loan cycle of the Women's Committee program, where each woman puts forth her best effort to grow in her respective business. They also do activities together to continue growing and helping their families.

Mary sells milk and she says that her day starts very early, given that she has to deliver her product to her customers for breakfast. She notes that thanks to her good product she has developed a very good customer base that faithfully buys from her. Her dream is to continue growing and one day be able to have a large dairy farm. She's asking for this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of milk, to have a better stock and therefore continue supplying her customers.

In the photo there are 19 women because this is the number of women in the group, but only 17 received credit in this cycle.

In this group: Mary, Patrocinia, Lucia, Delia, Felicita, Erodita, Primitiva, Gervacia, Antonia, Fatima, Gloria, Maria, Lorenza, Luz, Melisia, Celina, Estela
