A loan helped a member to buy and sell fruit.


Dúo Esperanza De Santiago Group's story

For four years, Elisa Floridalma has had a fruit stand in the municipal market of Santiago Sacatepéquez. This helps her husband with household expenses, and gives a stable life to her daughter, age two years.

She has many dreams and desires, but the principal one is to stock her stand with fruit and vegetables, and perhaps one day to have, or to be the proprietor of, a fruit and vegetable distributorship in her area. She needs funds to be able to invest, and so to achieve her dream.

In this group: Maria Elena, Elisa Floridalma
