A loan helped to buy products for her store.
Alegria Group's story
Santa Catarina is 29 and married. Though she did not have the opportunity to go to school, her 4 children are students. She sells cosmetics and also has a store where she sells consumer staples. She started the business with her husband's help, and she now has 7 years of experience. Her husband is a weaver. She hopes her business will grow and generate more profit. This is the reason she decided to organize a group to request a loan that will increase her working capital and allow her to purchase more goods for her store. She is going to purchase water, sodas, sweets, spices, canned goods, sugar, etc. The other group members work in the store; tailor clothing; weave sheets and napkins; make skirts and blouses; and raise livestock.
