A loan of $4,500 helped a member to buy balanced feed for animals.


Madre Central Group's story

The Madre Central committee has passed the fourth cycle. All of the women in the group earn a living raising animals, such as chicken and pigs. They also sell eggs and cheese.

They are in an area fairly far from the city, and although it is growing, their incomes are from completely rural activities, but self-sacrificing.

Gloria also earns her living raising animals, and she sells or slaughters them. She says it is very self-sacrificing work taking care of animals, but it looks like an option for being able to help her family. She stands out in the group for being a very enthusiastic person with a desire to get ahead.

She is asking for this loan to invest in buying balanced feed for her animals, to be able to continue taking care of them and also continue fighting for her family.
