A loan of $2,375 helped a member to buy summer clothes.

La Vecindad Del Cinco Group's story

The “Vecindad del Cinco” (Neighborhood of the Five) has seven members who are all retailers. They sell clothes and groceries, for example. It has been in operation for over 7 years and they have done an extraordinary job with profits from the loans.

One case in particular is Mrs. Beatriz Bazán, 39. She goes out every day with her ambulatory clothing sales business. This business has brought her many benefits, like being able to educate her four children, providing food, clothing and a roof over their heads.

She plans to use the present loan to buy summer clothes and to save up to buy a fabric cutting machine in the future that will be very helpful for her business.

Every member of the group has a different job but they all agree on dedication and daily effort to make progress and continue to move forward.

In this group: Beatriz, Martha, Ermanda, Elsa, Yolanda, Aladino, Guisela Alina
