A loan of $2,375 helped a member to invest in buying supplies for making trash bags.

Sarita Colonia Del Progreso Group's story

Martha is 55 years old. She is married and has seven children, only one of whom still lives at home with her. For one year, Martha has been making trash bags. She used to have a small grocery store but, over time, she saw that she wasn't making very good profits and so decided to change her business activity and start making bags. She used her savings to buy a machine for sealing plastic.

Martha will invest her loan in increasing her capital and buying supplies. She has managed to buy another machine and her dream is to own a plastics company.
