A loan of $1,000 helped a member to pay for a course and to buy slippers and accessories to embroider.


Alcanzando Metas Group's story

The members of “Alcanzando Metas” ('Achieving Goals') committee are currently beginning their first loan cycle within the women's committee program. They are all neighbors. The women own different businesses and they will use their loan to purchase various goods to sell and supplies for production. Some of the members do not yet have business activities which make them profits and are currently searching for activities and projects to increase their income. One of them is Mariza who is currently a cleaner. She does not yet have another activity but would like to attend a course on embroidering slippers and making jewelry so that she can do this as an extra activity and at the same time make additional income until she manages to become completely independent. For achieve this, she must pay for her course and buy the slippers and accessories which she will use. She is requesting the loan to invest in this idea. She is very excited and enthusiastic and hopes that everything will turn out well. She thanks the people who make this program possible.

In this group: Mariza, Gabriela, Biviana, Rossana, Norma, Catalina, Maria Cristina, Matilde, Agustina
