Paraiso Group's story

The group “Paraíso” is represented by Mrs. Melby Janet and it is comprised of 12 members who are cheerful and united and have known each other for many years since they live in the same neighborhood. The majority of the members sell groceries in neighborhood stores, food, and stuffing and are hairdressers in beauty salons. Competition where they work is small because the majority of their products are unique for the place. The loan will be used to increase their merchandize and invest in the gasification of their products and to buy beauty tools to have a more efficient service that is more in tune to the necessities of their clients. This will increase their earnings and better their opportunities to support of their families. Former loan experience by members is that they participated in group loans and have the knowledge of handling their finances and how to work as a team.

In this group: Melby Janet, Blanca Antonia, Jimmy, Carla Katterine, Lina, Maria Esther, Martin*, Anghelo Henrry, Maria Jacqueline*, Claudia Alejandra, Enrique Benjamin, Marcela
