A loan of $3,725 helped a member to buy more pigs.

Banco Mujer Creciendo Unidas Group's story

Alba is the president of the communal bank "Mujer Creciendo Unidas" ["Women Growing Together"]. She is 54 years old and married. She has raised pigs for more than 20 years. She has a pigpen with three pigs and two pregnant sows. Thanks to her history and her years of experience, she has been able to install a biodigester in her home, which generates gas for cooking. Thus, she avoids polluting the environment with the waste from her pigs, and she uses it appropriately. She would like this loan in order to invest in buying more pigs, since it is a good time to raise these animals. She would like to continue with her work, since it allows her to contribute economically to her household and continue living with dignity. She says she chose Fundación Mujer because of its simple paperwork and low interest rate.
