A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase bread.

María Eugenia's story

The credit group En Acción [In Action] meets every fifteen days in the Canton of Pichincha. It is noted for being a very vibrant area where most of the people work in agriculture and raising livestock; and for being an area of vast vegetation through which a great river flows, making it favorable for farming. This is where María lives. She is 27 years old and she is married, but she does not yet have children. Her husband is a vendor.

María and her husband are vendors, and every day they travel to various cities, delivering bread to stores and businesses within each city. The have a car which they use to follow their routes—they receive the bread from a factory in the city of Santo Domingo, and then they carry out their work, visiting cities such as El Empalme, Balzar, Quevedo, and also their own city, in which they have many customers. They have been doing this work for eight years, and through it they hope to build a better future for when they have children.

This loan is for the purchase of bread. This is her third cycle in the credit group, and she likes it because the loans help her very much to finance her business.

Her dream is to have her first baby.
