A loan of $2,600 helped a member capital for starting their businesses.


Estrellas De Mar Group's story

Edith T. is the president of the “Estrellas de Mar” group, which is part of the Villa Exaltación regional office. Like her colleagues, she wants to start her own business so that she can support her family. Edith wants to open an Internet café since, as she explains, this business is becoming more and more profitable. She needs capital in order to start her business. Her colleagues work in different businesses—for example, Juana sells clothing, Jennifer sells birthday cards, Inés recycles paper and scrap metal, Flora and Rosmery prepare food, and Marcos earns a living making shoes. All of the members of the group need capital so that they can purchase merchandise and supplies in order to start their businesses.

In this group: Edith , Gaby, Flora, Rosmery, Zenobia, Mary Isabel, Lidez Miliana, Yenifer Leisi, Doris Janett, Silvia Andrea, Marco, Gabriela*
