A loan helped a member to buy athletic shoes and Panamanian sandals to sell to her steady customers.


Las 4X4 Group's story

Rosa Orquidea (at the front of the group, wearing lilac pants), in spite of her health problems, has not stopped with her business. She has been the president of the Las 4x4 communal bank for two years. Her husband is a merchant, and she lives with their three children. They are the motor that drives her to getting ahead.

Rosa needs a loan to continue with her undertaking. She will buy athletic shoes and Panamanian sandals, which she will sell to her steady customers.

Rosa is her own boss, makes use of her time, and is more vigilant about her health. She now needs your help in order to continue on.

In this group: Yasmina Del Socorro, Jacqueline Antonia, Edith Del Socorro, Suyen, Maria Auxiliadora, Jose Napoleon, Jose Luis, Rosa Orquidia, Heydi Julieth
