Mi Casita Group's story

The group called “Mi Casita” (My Little House) is in its first cycle in the women’s committee program. They are learning how to work together and how to help each other out. They are also taking the poverty elimination survey so that they can get to know the situation of each and thanks to it they learned that three of the women are very low income.

One of the members is Benigna who was poverty level one in the last survey, that is to say very low income. She’s a pastry chef and makes all sorts of delicious things thanks to which she’s getting ahead and helping her family. She says that she always has many orders and thanks to this is doing very well.

She requests this loan to buy more ingredients like flour, yeast and sugar that will help her improve income and continue to grow in her micro business.

In this group: Mary, Elida, Pablina, Isabel, Midia, Digna, Isidora, Lilian, Benigna, Jacinta, Maria, Mirian, Norma, Maria, Lourdes*
