A loan helped a member to buy sombreros in all sizes, hats, and caps.


Omega Group's story

Antonio, age 68, lives with his life companion and his granddaughter, age 6, who is his economic dependent.

For 16 years, Antonio has had a small business selling hats and caps. His workday is from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. It is a skill that he learned very well, and which permits him to generate income for household responsibilities.

But he wants to make his business grow, and therefore he requests a loan to buy sombreros in all sizes, hats and caps. With this investment, he hopes to improve the availability of his products, and so to increase his sales and income. He dreams that his business will prosper, in order to offer his family good economic stability.

Antonio, Isabel, and Rosa form the solidarity group "Omega". They are responsible and enterprising people with the common goal of getting their families ahead.

In this group: Antonio, Isabel, Rosa Alicia
