but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy more merchandise (fruits and vegetables).


Belen Group's story

Consuelo Elizabeth lives with her two children, ages 17 and 14, who depend on her economically because she is a single mother.

For 25 years, Consuelo has worked selling fruits and vegetables within her community. It is a trade that she learned with her mom, and it enables her to generate income to help with the responsibilities of the household. But she wants to have more capital invested.

Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise (fruits and vegetables). With this investment, she hopes to have product always available in order to increase her sales. She dreams of having a prosperous, stable, and secure business to give her children a better future.

Consuelo, along with Ricardo, Jessica, and Juan, make up the solidarity group "Belen." They are responsible and enterprising people who are pursuing the same goal of supporting their families.
