A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy fertilizer.

Mujeres Bonitas Group's story

María is in a de-facto marriage. She’s 45-years-old and completed third grade in primary school. She has six children three of whom are attending school. She works in agriculture. She started the business with the purchase of a few coffee plants and planting a small plot. To date she has five years’ experience.

She decided to form a group and request a loan she’ll use to buy fertilizer for her coffee crop. In future, she’d like to have more land to be able to plant more coffee and earn higher income.

The other group members work growing coffee, corn and weaving traditional clothing.

Six members appear in the photo but the loan was only granted to five of them.

In this group: Maria , Maria , Cruz , Natividad , Marina
