A loan of $3,500 helped a member to buy mixed clothing of all types and sandals.


Gs. Las Palmeras Group's story

Señora Norma is a very hard-working woman who is dedicated to her business, which is selling underwear for children, women, and men. She also sells beauty products such as creams, deodorants, perfumes, and American clothing, also secondhand.

She has been doing this for more than 10 years, and she tends her business from her house. Her principal customers are the neighbors from her community and also the employees of some businesses in the zone. Norma is very grateful for the support of the previous loan, since with it she bought two bundles of bed linens in the winter season, and the sales were excellent.

Now she is again applying for the support of a loan for the purchase of sandals, underwear, and a bundle of mixed American clothing. Norma's dream is to have a little, well-stocked store in her community so that her customers don't have to go to the city to buy the product.

Norma is applying for the support of the loan with the following people: Sonia has a little grocery store in her house, which she has been administering personally for more than nine years. Señora Irene sells nacatamales, meats, and cold cuts, as well as pigs. She has been doing this for more than 31 years. Señora Candida has been selling basic grains and pigs for more than six years. None of them have the working capital necessary to stock their respective businesses.
