A loan of $1,950 helped a member purchase supplies for pharmacy.


El Carmen Group's story

Silvia is 52 years old and has a grown daughter who is studying law at the university. She has a pharmacy where she gives consultations and sells medicine. Silvia has been in business for 16 years, but she lacks capital to stock and equip the pharmacy. Silvia is a great leader who brought together 11 other ladies to form the communal bank, El Carmen, which is named for its location. With God's help and her daughter's support, Silvia hopes that one day her pharmacy will be large enough to open another branch.
