A loan helped to buy a freezer to use in her business making cheese.

Unidas De Correa Rugua Group's story

This group, called Unidas de Correa Rugua, is in the fifth cycle of the committee of women program. They are from the city of San Pedro, an area in the process of urbanization. It has all the basic services, but lacks certain improvements that will come over time.

Isabel is one of the members. She works selling cheese. She says that she herself makes it, with the help of her family. Every day she begins her work very early, and works until late at night. She is a very enterprising person who seeks a way to grow and get ahead.

Isabel seeks this loan to buy a freezer. This will allow her to keep the products she sells for longer periods of time, and will improve the service she provides her customers.
