Banco Mujer Visión Group's story

Esmeralda is the president of “Banco Mujer Visión”, a group that consists of nine indigenous women from the districts of Talamanca. These women engage in trade and agriculture.

Doña Esmeralda is a single mother and the head of her household. She has two young children. This hardworking woman is a traveling merchant who sells clothing, perfumes, cosmetics, and other products through catalogs. The income she generates from this business enables her to cover all of her family expenses, reinvest, and repay her loan. She has received three previous loans, which were a great help to her and her children.

This new investment will be used to buy merchandise such as sandals, clothing, and other products for which she has orders. Her most important goal is to provide a better quality of life for her little ones, but she also wants to increase her sales by expanding into other communities nearby.

In this group: Esmeralda, Judith , Ana, Herminia, Susana , Maria, Elieth, Ivannia, Rosalia
