Pay Day

So we have 12 active village banks at the moment. 12 groups of women that have collectively taken out a loan to invest in their small businesses and made the decision to improve their lives, in one way, shape or form. I went to a repayment meeting a couple of days ago and was just shocked. Our women are running the show. They are collecting loan repayments, giving change and double checking their 'bank' accounts. Senor de los Milagros village bank, who is now in their 2nd loan cycle, was beginning to follow our promotoras' footsteps the last time I visited them. They know what they are doing now. When Pay Day comes it means business. Our women are doing business.
