Dona Vicencia of the rural women’s group in Cristina Castro is proud to show Rosalba how the micro loan provided by VinB is helping families to generate additional family incomes.
In the early 1990’s Rosalba and Dona Vicencia were instrumental in setting up the Rural Women’s Group in Cristino Castro.
The group continues to meet and support the concerns of rural women.
The group recently received a micro loan to help them to buy materials for their cottage industry producing handicrafts for sale in the local community.
The project is going so well that the group is repaying the loan with advanced repayments. Once repaid the monies will be used to support other families and communities.
