A loan helped a member to buy fertilizer, seeds, and fabric.

Cashaloma (Nabón) Group's story

The communal bank Cashaloma comprises five female members and two male members who all work in different businesses that help them improve their household economy. Particularly they work raising animals and farming, while many of them work in the city carrying out other types of business. They live in the canton of Nabón, a place with lots of vegetation and green meadows. Its architecture is a mix of modern and colonial.

Rosa is one of its members. This is her first loan and she wants to do her part for the group to grow and become more and more united. Rosa is 34 years old, married, and has four children from her marriage. Their ages are sixteen, fourteen, twelve, and nine. All four of them are in school. Her husband works in construction and they own the house where they live.

Rosa works raising chickens and pigs, and farming produce for home consumption as well as to sell. She also works sewing, making traditional skirts. She will invest the money from her loan in buying fertilizer, seeds, and fabric. Her goal is to have more animals.
