A loan helped a member to buy an iron, hair dryer, and products like shampoo, cosmetics, etc.


Mainumby Group's story

The group called Mainumby is in its fifth cycle with the Women's Committee. The group is from the city of San Pedro and is in an area that is undergoing urbanization and where everyone struggles to excel and get ahead.

Margarita is one of the members. She is a hairdresser and has a modest salon where she takes care of all of her clients. She is very good at what she does and that is why she has a dedicated clientele. She states that her work helps her provide her family a dignified life without the neediness she endured.

She is asking for this loan so she can buy some of the materials she needs to develop her business such as an iron, a hairdryer, products like shampoo, cosmetics, and others.

In this group: Anastacia, Margarita, Graciela, Leonora, Norma, Yessica, Cecilia, Maria, Olga, Mercedes, Juana, Francisca, Dahiana, Valeriana, Judith, Liz, Pascuala, María, Zunilda, Mirian, Elena
