Mujeres Del Calvario S.b Group's story

Doña María is 38-years-old, is married, has three children, and lives in the town of Santa Barbara. She has always dedicated herself to the cultivation of basic grains and coffee. Seven years ago, she decided to sell secondhand clothing such as shirts, jeans, shorts, blouses, children's clothing, etc. as well as footwear for ladies. She has requested several loans to keep this business activity ongoing. Her loan request is for 5,000 Lempiras and she has applied for this loan as part of a group. She will invest in buying a bundle of used clothing to sell in order to increase her income. She intends to invest the profits in the maintenance of her coffee farm.

The group to which she belongs is called Mujeres del Calvario S.B, which includes María and Clementina. In the right of the photo wearing the white blouse is María and the woman in the purple blouse is Doña Clementina. Both live in the same community and are both engaged in selling and agriculture. The group loan they are requesting is for 8,000 Lempiras to buy secondhand clothing to sell.

In this group: Maria Consuelo, Clementina
