A loan helped a member to buy merchandise to expand her business for her customers.

Los Laureles Group's story

Teresa is single and has 3 children. She started lollies business because she was a single mother and needed to generate income to support herself.

She has been working for 8 years in this business that is located near a kindergarten. She starts her activities very early every day to make her sales and comes home in the afternoon.

She met her group because a member encouraged her to be part of the PRO MUJER group. That's when she met all the members of the group.

She invested her first loan in her business and every loan that PRO MUJER grants her is a great help for her. Her goals with this loan are to increase her business and purchase merchandise to expand her business for her customers. Her family aspirations are for her children to be professionals.
