A loan of $1,400 helped a member buying a washing machine.


Pilar Poty Group's story

The women's committee called "Pilar Poty" was founded on September 24, 2010, and it is currently in its first loan cycle, working together in solidarity within the program. A very moving story is that of Maria Isabel T., whose work is washing clothes. She says that through the loan, she has been able to improve her business quite a lot, as well as her income and her standard of living. She reports that with the loan, her life has improved greatly. According to Maria, the work of the Foundation is very important because she never found this kind of opportunity elsewhere, since she is very poor. She is requesting the loan to buy a washing machine.
