A loan helped a member to buy utensils for their prepared food business.


Am Tuti Fruti Group's story

The communal association AM Tutti Frutti has Natividad serving as president, Larixa as treasurer, and Georgina as secretary. The group has eight members. The loan will benefit micro-entrepreneurs of the AM Tutti Frutti group, where Mary Luz is a member.

She started off selling sandals, which required a great deal of time, so she switched to selling food out of her home in Barrio Espino Blanco. She runs her business responsibly and keeps everything clean. She buys her ingredients at the market on the weekends.

The credit provided by the Pro Mujer Foundation mentions that it helps people build financial success. This loan will be used for operating capital and investment (in business equipment: freezer, more tables and chairs, and ingredients for cooking). This work allows her to generate earnings to support her family. Her husband is a taxi driver, and they have four children. Mary Luz's goal is that her children will grow up to have professional careers and not want for anything along the way.

In this group: Natividad Natalia, Sara, Victor Hugo, Georgina, Maria Fernanda, Larixa Alexia, Uvaldo Guillermo, Mary Luz
