A loan of $2,300 helped a member to purchase children's movies.


Sam Soom Group's story

This is a new community bank, but with two senior members, it is comprised of eight people. The majority of the women live in the Tembladerani zone. They sell CDs and cellular accessories. Others sell high end clothes that are well known in the group. There are also two men who live in the same area. The president's name is Shirley. She sells CDs, and her locale is on a central avenue that goes through the city of La Paz. She is established and very responsible. She has been working in this business for two years. The money from the loan will be used to CDs with music and children's movies since the school holiday has started and there is a lot of demand for these children's movies. Shirley is a young, hardworking person. She is grateful to this organization for the help it provides.

In this group: Tania, Keyla Rosio, Patricia Shirley, Liz Mariela, Alejandra Maria, Carla Paola, Ramiro Ivan, Ivan Sergio
