A loan helped a member to buy corn, cooking oil, potatoes, bananas, tomatoes, and cabbage, etc.


San Antonio Group's story

Egling, age 19, devotes herself to making and selling homestyle food (tacos, potatoes, enchiladas, and fried plantains, etc.). She says that she started to work in this business because, ever since she was little, she sold in an itinerant manner with her mother. After 15 years of age she set up the sale at her own place, but always with her mother's support.

She is requesting a loan from Fundenuse in order to buy raw material for her business. Her goal is to improve and expand her business and to improve the living conditions of her household.

She is the coordinator of the San Antonio Group. She is in the group with Felipa and Bertila who devote themselves to making and selling tortillas, pastries, and ground coffee. They hope that with this new loan the will be able to prosper in their businesses and get good earnings from their sales.

In this group: Felipa, Bertilda, Egling
