A loan of $3,575 helped a member to purchase medicines for her pharmacy.

Damas Triunfadoras Group's story

Zoila is a pharmacist. Since she was very young she has always worked in a pharmacy. She has always had the dream of having her own pharmacy so that she would not have to work for others any more. Thanks to her husband's help and with some savings she has been able to manage her dream. She started with only a modest inventory, only a few medicines, only the bare essentials. With her knowledge of pharmacy she has gained a good deal of clients and because her service is personalized her pharmacy has grown significantly, offering a large variety of products. She is now thinking about putting up another pharmacy at a different location. Her greatest dream is to have her pharmacy well stocked and to live with her family comfortably. This loan will be used to acquire more inventory, to purchase more medicines and perfumes. Triumphant Women is the name of the community group to which she belongs. She is the treasurer of the group, a position of great responsibility.
