A loan helped to buy ice cream and supplies for her ice cream shop.

Las Palmeritas Group's story

Gregoria's ice cream shop continues to grow and she loves the feeling of being able to provide for her family. She has been able to support her two children who still live at home, giving them the opportunity to continue their studies instead of dropping out to find work. Gregoria will use her current loan to restock supplies for her ice cream shop and will also purchase shoes and purses in bulk to resell in her community. She has learned a lot about entrepreneurism and has expanded from only selling ice cream to selling other fashion items, as well.

Others in Gregoria's group continue to benefit from the community of women they have developed and keep growing their businesses of beauty salons, barbeque stands, and making clothing.
