Banco Mujer Buscando El Triunfo Group's story

Doña Xinia, 29, is a member of the Mujer Buscando El Triunfo community bank. She and her partner have 4 young children, 3 of whom are in school. Her partner makes a small income working construction, but it's not enough to support the family. Doña Xinia has a small plot of land where she grows platanos. She prepares the land herself, plants and tends her crop, and harvests what she grows. This is her first loan application and she will use the money to buy seeds, organic manure, fertilizer, insecticides, plastic bags and cardboard boxes. The business is her means of helping her family and she wants to make a success of it. The other 6 members of the community bank pictured with Doña Xinia will invest in their own small businesses.

In this group: Xinia, Marlen, Sixta, Yosseling, Helia, Elieth, Selfida
