Las Emprendedoras Del Milenio Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy merchandise (fleece sweaters for men and women).

Las Emprendedoras Del Milenio Group's story

This group is comprised of seven very hardworking and determined women. They are members of the communal bank "Las Emprendedoras del Milenio."

One of the members is Carla. She is 20 years old, is cohabitating, and has one daughter. Carla has sold men's and women's undergarments (nylons, underpants, etc.) for two years. She works every day in the morning as a street vendor outside a market. In the afternoon, she sells beverages (purple corn drink, passion fruit, etc.). Her businesses are the only source of income for her and her family.

In the future, she would like to buy a store to provide her customers more comfort and offer them more variety of products in order to generate more income.

Now for the winter season, with the loan provided, she will invest in purchasing merchandise (fleece sweaters for men and women) to sell, thus continuing to generate more earnings.
