Sector Iglesia Catolica Group's story

The three women in the group Sector Iglesia Catolica live in Aldea Chocola, San Pablo Jocopilas, Suchitepequez, Guatemala. They range in age from 33 to 43. Their education is from third grade to high school. Two are single. One is a widow. They have from one to three children. Their businesses include a small store, the preparation and sale of fried chicken and fried potatoes, and the preparation and sale of tortillas and small meals. They are starting their first cycle with the Namaste Creating Prosperity Program and are looking forward to the financial literacy classes and advice from a personal business advisor. They are eager to learn to better manage their businesses and to make more money.

Claudia is 41, single with a grown son. She finished high school and for many years has had a small store from which she sells daily necessities. She will use her loan to buy rice, beans, drinks, sugar, eggs, snacks and disinfectants. Her short-term goal is to add the sale of gifts. Her long-term goal is to sell wholesale to other stores.

Her monthly net profit is 1,925 Guatemalan Quetzales ($250). She hopes to increase that to Q3,045 ($395) by the end of this cycle.
