A loan helped a member to buy a freezer.


Latinos Group's story

Lidia is a 41-year-old entrepreneurial woman. She is a single mother of a 14-year-old youth. Also, she is the president of the Banca Comunal Latinos Group.

She has been selling food and drinks for two years from the doorway of her home. She wants to increase her sales by preserving food.

So, she requested a loan from Sembrar Sartawi IFD to buy a freezer that will allow her to store food without it spoiling.

She wants her child to enroll in college one day so she is saving up.
