Banco Mujer Buscando El Triunfo Group's story

Xinia is a 30 year old woman who is mother to four children, all minors. Three of them attend primary school. She lives in a common-law relationship with the father of her children who works as a construction assistant earning a minimum salary. They live in a rural community in Talalmanca. Xinia has a small plot of land where she undertakes different commercial activities like raising chickens and growing plantains. She prepares the land herself grows and cares for her crops. Occasionally she has the help of her partner when he has free time.

This is the second loan she has requested and she will invest it in buying chickens and feed. She has much desire to improve her living conditions and increase her inheritance and improving the productivity of her crops. Given this situation she is raising animals to be able to pay the installments of her loan as banana production does not follow a monthly schedule. Doing this she will generate more income and help her household. Together with Xinia is her group of six other members who will invest in their business and farming activities.

In this group: Xinia, Marlen, Sixta, Yosseling, Helia, Elieth, Selfida
