Siempre Adelante Group's story

Mrs.Blanca Odila is 53 years old. She is a widow and has five adult children. She is a member of the "Siempre Adelante" (Always Moving Ahead) Group, maD. up of 8 people.

For 15 years she has run a copy shop in a rented storefront located in a very commercial area. She began this work with only one photocopier, and she began adding machines and included office supplies since the customers asked for them.

With this business she has managed to open a small store in her house and cover her personal expenses, such as health expenses. Her next goal is to expand the store and move her photocopiers to her house, so she will not have to commute everyday to the shop, which is about an hour and a half from her house.

She will invest the requested loan in purchasing drinks to increase her store's stock.
