A loan of $3,750 helped a member to harvest pineapples and bananas and package them for sale.


San Miguel Group's story

San Miguel Communal Bank was formed by several neighbors from the city of Santaní. They're in the fifth loan cycle of the women's committee program. It's a group of women who are very close and help each other. All the women earn a living in agriculture, specifically growing pineapple and bananas. They're women from rural areas that are extremely isolated from central areas that are still growing. Sandra's requesting this loan to invest in harvesting pineapples and bananas, then packaging them for sale. She's a very hardworking and enterprising woman.

In this group: Gladys, Lida, Cornelia, Norma, Valentina, Marcelina, Silvina, Sonia, Sandra, Fidelina, Saturnina, Emilse, María, Tomasa, Irmina*, Maricel*, Ninfa*
