A loan of $4,675 helped a member to buy raw materials and merchandise.


3 De Mayo Group's story

The 3rd of May community association can be found in Alto Lima, and it has 15 members. The majority dedicate themselves to knitting blankets, sweaters, and mittens. Others sell fruit, vegetables and refreshments. The ones that knit need a loan to buy raw materials such as yarn. Those who are merchants need funds to buy products.

One of the members is Silveria M., who dedicates herself to knitting blankets. She indicates that she has the most orders for her goods during this season because of the cold weather, and she needs the loan to buy yarn.

In this group: Rosminda, Silveria, Dorotea, Fortunata, Inocencia Teodora, Marina, Dionicia, Paula, Gregoria, Petrona, Genara, Jeaneth, Wilma, Martha, Nieves
