El Shapajalito Group's story

Carolith, 23, belongs to the El Shapajalito communal bank, made up of eight members and led by her. She has worked for five years selling groceries and sandals. Her goal is to continue earning an income.

Currently she lives in her in-laws' house with her companion. He sells gas and her in-laws provided her with space to set up her small store to sell groceries and sandals.

Now she's requesting her loan to expand her business because thanks to her in-laws she has a bigger space and she wants to buy more merchandise to offer her customers.

As a second income she rents out her three-wheeled motorcycle. She wants to continue saving her extra earnings to improve her house someday. One of her dreams is to continue to grow her business.

She's considered very hardworking and happy.
