A loan of $5,950 helps a member buy socks and underwear.


Pahuichi Alalay Group's story

Ricarda is 46, separated, and has four children. She has been selling clothing for 5 years. This loan is to invest in the purchase of socks and underwear wholesale. Her dream is to have a well-stocked store because at the moment she sells on the street wherever she can. Her children need more investment in their education and she is the only income earner.
She was invited by her neighbours and family members to be part of this group, as they knew her and know that she is hard-working and responsible.
