Las Pioneras De Chijini De Rsr Group's story

The group “Las Pioneras D. Chijini” (The Chijini Pioneers) has thirteen members and is represented by Sra. Elsa. This is their second loan; they have been very responsible in making the payments on time. They are all hard working and trustworthy. The president has three children, one of them has his own family and the other two are teenagers. They work together to grow their business selling oil. The other members have a variety of businesses, such as, a neighborhood grocery store; a beer distributor; wool handcrafts and other homemaD. products; a retail store for sports, women and children clothes, and stuffed animals; a jewelry manufacturer and retail; a food stand at the local market fairs.

Even if there are competitors in the area where they do business, the influx of consumers to the markets and the constant urban growth lessen the impact from competitors. In fact, many of the group members are hoping to grow their businesses.

They are requesting this loan to buy large quantities of merchandise; to buy construction material to expand their small stores and proviD. better customer service; and to buy raw materials. This will allow them to increase their income and proviD. their families with a higher quality of life.
