Nuestra Amistad Group's story

The "Nuestra Amistad" group is led by María Evelin and maD. up of 11 members, who are very unified and active entrepreneurs, who want to get involved with credit transactions to help their businesses grow and to improve every day as their various commercial activities show. They are involved in such things as: peddling silver jewelry, selling clothing and used American clothing, sale of prepared meals. They also make and hand-paint tablecloths, make drapery, and bake traditional pastries. They work out of their own homes or as peddlers from place to place. They all have competition in their areas but they also have regular customers that they can count on to generate profits needed for their families' sustenance. When they aren't doing too well in a neighborhood they move on to others or they manage to diversify their activity so that they can continue to generate earnings for their homes. The funding will be used to buy ingredients, supplies and tools to improve their work with better efficiency and agility in order to generate better incomes. Despite this being their first loan with Agrocapital, they have previous experience in managing financing that they have had from similar institutions. They are grateful for the trust given them as well as for the economic help which allows them to see their business grow and their familis have better lives.

In this group: Maria Evelin, Fanny, Solange, Elba, Felicia, Daisy, Ingrid, Adelfa Alcira, Ine Candelaria, Mercedes, Maria Rosario
