Banco Mujer Jehová Proveerá Group's story

Doña Nurian is president of the communal bank "Banco Mujer Jehová Proveerá" (Jehovah Will Provide Women's Bank). She is a 38-year old indigenous woman who is married and has four children. Three of her children are dependent and two of them go to school, primary and secondary school respectively. Doña Nurian and her family have a small plot of land on which her husband plants bananas and she raises chickens and pigs. This is how the two of them cover the family's expenses. Their income is very small, but they have been able to get ahead thanks to the loans from Fundación Mujer. This is doña Nurian's fifth loan request, and she is going to invest this new loan in the purchase of chickens, condensed meal and vitamins as well as materials for improving the condition of the chicken coops. Doña Nurian is a very hard-working woman. Her objectives are to make repairs to her house, which is in bad shape, and also to continue supporting her children in their educations. There are five more members of the communal bank doña Nurian belongs to. They will also invest in agricultural and livestock-related businesses.
