A loan of $2,025 helped a member to purchase chickens by the basket.


Lourdes Group's story

The group is made up of three successful members and coordinated by Claudia, 32 years old, in a relationship and with two children who depend on her. She has worked in buying and selling chickens for the past 4 years. With previous loans, she has had multiple successes, one of which is the expansion of her business, and the purchase of an electrical appliance. The loan she requests is to purchase white and colored chickens, so she can increase her income though this increase in sales. The other members are Maria, a 56-year-old chicken vendor in the municipality of Masaya for the past 15 years, and Luis, a 29-year-old vendor of dairy products, such as cheese, in the municipal market.

In this group: María Lourdes, Claudia, Luis Santiago
