La Candelaria Group's story

The “La Candelaria” (Candlemas) committee is in its third cycle with 16 members. They are women from a city that’s very far from the central zone and that’s mostly agricultural. They are striving to improve the zone they live in.

One of the members is Irma who raises animals like chickens and pigs. The loan she’s asking for is to buy nutritionally balanced feed and animals to sell to her neighbors. She wants to continue working in order to have her own family business working with her husband and children for their mutual well-being. She states, by the way, that they are her reason for being.

In this group: Ninfa, Lorena, Eudelia, Nilsa, Isabel, Sergia, Irma, Cinthia, Mirta, Norma, Elisa, Liz, Claudia, Blanca, Teresa, Dilma
