A loan of $2,925 helped a member to buy new tires for her car she uses as a taxi.

Paso A Paso Group's story

Fortunata is the treasurer of the group "Paso a Paso" which means "Step by Step." This group of friends and neighbors chose this name because they are slowly improving their lives a little bit at a time.

Fortunata, pictured in the front row in the black jacket, is a 62-year-old widow. She has four adult children who have businesses of their own. Fortunata's business is a taxi service that she runs with her nephew. With this loan, Fortunata plans to buy new tires for her car she uses as a taxi.

The roads in northern Lima, where she lives, can be very hazardous: potholes and dirt roads really take a toll on her taxi cab. With a better maintained taxi, Fortunata hopes to attract more passengers and earn a better living.

In this group: Fortunata, Julia Rosa, Luisa, Florencia Teofila, Romina Nycol, Lourdes Elizabeth, Cecilia Maura, Janina, Moina Edith, Harol Christian, Odele Elizabeth
