A loan of $3,250 helped a member to buy fabric, thread and cosmetics for her business.


Chayito Group's story

This group is called "CHAYITO" because at the time it was set up the members were Olympic games enthusiasts and they wanted to name themselves after one of the participating athletes. The group is based in the state of México and comprised of 11 members. Mrs. María is the president. She is 41 and sells cosmetics and is a seamstress. On this occasion she is requesting a loan to buy more products to sell and raw materials for her dress-making. She wants to pay lower prices, help meet her customers' needs and also acquire more prestige to expand her business.

She plans to use the loan to buy fabric, thread and cosmetics. She is happy about the loan because she feels supported. With her earnings she will continue to invest in merchandise and also help cover household expenses.
