A loan helped a member to purchase a car for her business, which will allow her to sell her products in the market.


Ave Fenix Group's story

Olga, 42 years old, is single with 7 children. She works selling fast food at her own home. She began this business 6 years ago, selling in the market in Cochabamba. A typical day for this borrower is getting up very early to take care of her children and then to work selling her products. She was able to meet the members of the group since they live in the same neighborhood as her home.

With her first loan, she was able to invest in the purchase of her first items for her business. With this second loan, she will invest in purchasing a car for her business, which will allow her to sell her products in the market. Her goals and aspirations for this loan are that her business grows and improves so to be able to get more income and be able to offer a stable life for her children. Her life goal is to be able to own a house.
