A loan of $5,850 helped a member to purchase fruit to sell.


Peguaho Group's story

The Peguaho group is in their 10th cycle with the women's committee program where they all work and help each other to succeed. They are participating in the poverty elimination survey. Sixteen women are at the green level, meaning they have good income but they need to continue working to maintain their income.

One of the group members is Gumercinda, who was at the yellow level of poverty during the last survey, meaning she has middling income. Through her effort, continued work, and application of important behaviors of successful women, she is improving her poverty situation. She works selling fresh and seasonal fruit. It is going very well since she is improving her sales. She is a hardworking person who fights to succeed.

She is requesting this loan to purchase fruit to sell such as bananas, apples, pears, pineapple, and others. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving.

In this group: Gumercinda, Zuni, Dora, Magdalena, Victoria, De Las Nieves, Petrona, Ramona, Carmen, Tomasa, Leopoldina, Elena, Roció, Bernarda, Graciela*, Julia*
