Banco Mujer Kaneblapa Group's story

Marla is 38 years old, single, and a mother of five children. She works hard and has the desire to get ahead. She has been the president of Banco Mujer since its formation because her work as the group's leader has been outstanding. She and the other group members have been very responsible and punctual. This is the third loan they have requested.

Marla is still making a living raising pigs. Now, her production has increased, which has generated more income to cover her family's expenses and her children's education costs.

The financing they have received from the Fundación has been very helpful. She says that it has improved her and her family's living conditions. She will invest in pigs, animal feed and concentrates. In addition, she will make some repairs to the place where she keeps the pigs.

Together with Marla, there are three more members who will invest the loan in animal husbandry activities (pigs and chickens). They all strive for the same goal: growing their businesses and getting ahead to improve their quality of life and that of their families.

In this group: Marla, Eulalia, Xicinia, Rosario
