A loan of $5,800 helped a member to buy farming and veterinary products for her business.


Lagarto Group's story

Mary, an abandoned wife, lives with her 4 children. She's had a veterinary pharmacy for 10 years. With this business she covers the food, health and educational expenses of her children.

Mary's business is well-accepted, because it's the only one of its kind in the community. With this loan, she wants to stock up on fertilizers, fungicides, bactericides, and other products that are of great use in her community. This is because most of the residents work in farming and animal husbandry. Mary is sure that in this way she can better serve her community.

Mary wants to grow her business, and with the earnings, finish building her house. In the future, she wants to buy a car and a house in Santo Domingo. Mary's children want to continue with their education and become: a civil engineer, a model, a systems engineer, and a singer.

All of the members of this group are from the same community, and they have different businesses. They all want to serve their community, offering products at low cost and of very good quality. The leader of this group is raising her hand, and the mother of the child wanted to include him in the picture.

In this group: Cruz Maricela, Mary Elizabeth, Mauricio, Esthalin Gabriel, Gladys Veronica, Urbano Francisco, Daisy Rosario, Teofilo Enrique
