Banco Mujer Fuerzas Unidas Group's story

Keilyn is a member of the Mujer Fuerzas Unidas [United Strong Women], which has eight other hardworking and trustworthy members who work in ranching and small industry. Keilyn is 30, married, and the mother of three children, two of whom are in elementary school. Her husband works on a banana plantation. Keilyn manages a small plot of land that she owns and where she raises pigs, chickens, and grows several crops.

Keilyn works hard every day, and must get up early to do chores in her home, care for her children, and then go to work in the fields. She comes home in the evening and studies for her GED, as if this were an easy task.

Keilyn is in her second loan cycle and will invest these loan funds in the purchase of more pigs to grow and fatten, as well as the animals' food and vitamins. Keilyn's first loan helped her a great deal as it allowed her to make her business stronger and thus meet her children's educational expenses. The ambitions of this extremely entrepreneurial woman are to complete high school, then study computer science, and increase her wealth.
