A loan of $2,350 helped a member to invest in her grocery store.

Sarita Colonia Group's story

Isidora A. S. is 47, married and has two children, who are the reason for all her efforts and sacrifice. She is the president of the "Sarita Colonia" Group, of which she has been a member for the past four years. For ten years she has been selling groceries from a grocery store in her house. She started out selling beer and sodas with the support of her husband, who used part of his salary as start-up capital.

Income from the grocery store has allowed Isidora to support her son's higher education, start building her house, and buy another lot. She plans to invest this loan in merchandise for her store.
