A loan of $3,000 helped a member buy products to resell.

Las Flores De San Antonio Group's story

Lupe, 50, is a member of the Las Gardenias community bank. She has 4 children, one of whom is still in school. She is separated from her partner, but she can count on support from her older children. Lupe operates a corner store in her house. She also sells beauty products from well-known companies. She is happy with the business because sales are good. Past loans have helped her establish the grocery business and she will use this loan to buy wholesale supplies of rice, sugar and soft drinks that she will then resell. Lupe is an enterprising woman who has had to pick up responsibility for her family's expenses for the good of herself and the family. Lupe is wearing a white blouse in the photograph. The young girl is with her mother, another member of the group, and Sr. C. J. Cristian Jackson wasn't able to attend on the day the loan was distributed because he had to work.

In this group: Lupe Bruna, Zenaida Yolanda, Cristian Jackson*, Dominga, Daysi Yanina, Carmen Rosa, Maria Elena, Luz Nelida, Ana Maria, Alberta Donata
