A loan of $2,150 helped a member to buy the ingredients needed to make ceviche.

Los Jardines Group's story

Isabel Susana is 37 years old. She is divorced and has five children. She is a member of Los Jardines group (the name means 'the gardens'), which has five other members. No two members work in the same trade, but they all share a strong will to get ahead in life through their hard work. Isabel has been selling ceviche (raw fish prepared the traditional way) for about eight years. Her stall is located near a secondary school, so the students make up most of her customer base. Thanks to her business, she was able to provide for her children, particularly for her youngest son, who is only three years old. Isabel will use the loan to buy the ingredients needed to make ceviche.

In this group: Isabel Susana, Norma Noemi, Benedicta Eulalia, Jabe Sabina, Julio Cesar, Soraida Domenica
