A loan of $4,025 helped a member to purchase inventory for hardware store.

Solidaridad Group's story

Yvon runs a hardware store named Alza Distributions. She has been working alongsiD. her husband for the past 15 years. They rent the space for their store but the clientele is very good at that location. She takes care of buying and selling all the merchandise. They have also started manufacturing plastic tubing. This type of service is not very common and they offer this special service to other hardware stores since there is such high demand. Her work brings her a great deal of personal satisfaction because she can send her daughters to university and they can live comfortably. She would very much like to purchase a space to run the store so that they won't have to rent anymore. Yvon is the secretary of the community bank named Solidarity. With the help of this loan she will purchase more inventory for the hardware store, such as: tubing, wire, cement, steel bars etc. She wants to add greater variety to the products she offers her clientele.
