Estrellas De Belen Group's story
The Communal Association "Estrellas de Belen" (Stars of Bethlehem) meets at the Panamericana central office. The members formed this group approximately 4 years ago because they needed capital to improve their businesses. Simona L., 47 years old, is one of the members. For more than 10 years, she has sold bread. Her business has allowed her to cover the costs of her and her family's basic necessities. Now, she needs a loan to acquire merchandise. The other members of the group are involved in various economic activities such as selling clothes, juices, broad beans, food, and cardboard; offering transportation services, and operating a neighborhood shop. All of the members need the loan in order to invest and strengthen their businesses.
