A loan helped a member to buy a refrigerator for the food she prepares and later sells.


Del Valle Group's story

Ruth is the mother of two children. She gets up at five in the morning to make breakfast for her children, and to make gelatin which she sells with her husband to help support the household.

Ruth's dream is to be able to expand her business. For that reason she needs a loan to buy a refrigerator in order to be able to prepare other products. This will allow her to generate more income to buy a house and stop living in rentals.
