Banco Mujer Ditsöwo Group's story

Elizabeth’s president of the Ditsöwö communal bank, a group of indigenous women from the Talamanca zone. This very hardworking woman is 35-years-old and in a common law relationship. She has three children; one in elementary school and two in secondary. Her spouse works as a laborer on a small farm earning minimum wage which is why Elizabeth seeks ways to contribute towards family expenses.

She works raising chickens to sell among her neighbors. This is her second loan and she will use it to buy chicks, feed, concentrate and vitamins. This injection of capital will be of much help for her to increase production. Her plan for the future is to continue covering her children’s schooling costs.

There are seven additional members with Elizabeth who are going to invest in their commercial and animal husbandry activities.

In this group: Elizabeth, Nidia, Icelda, Irene, Maribel, Daysi, Elidieth, Betty
