San Isidro 2 Group's story

The women's group "San Isidro 2" is in its first loan cycle. All the women have promised to work and to help one another get ahead. They are part of the poverty elimination program, and four out of thirteen women in the group are living below the poverty line. They continue working in order to be able to improve the economy.

The featured member is Narcisa, and she makes a living selling chickens. It is a very demanding job because she always needs to keep an eye on her animals to ensure that they are healthy. She is a very fighting woman, and she wants to continue improving her business, little by little, through her efforts.

With the loan, she will buy a large quantity of chickens to raise and later sell. In this way, she will continue investing in her business and being able to give her family what they need.

In this group: Elizabeth, Olga, Alicia, Maria, Narcisa, Mirna, Lidia, Blanca, Cecilia, Liliana, Maria, Juana, Mirta
