A loan of $525 helped a member to buy beef and to buy tools and spare parts.

Duo Salem Group's story


This group is formed by Hilario, 38, who is single and has been an auto mechanic for ten years. He tells us that he needs the loan to buy paint and tools because the ones he has are deteriorated and these kinds of tools are expensive. This is why he needs capital to invest in the purchase of new tools to stay in business.

Also a member is Crescencio, 30. He is the leader of this duo. He’s married and has five children. He has sold beef and chicken for the last four years. He relates that he’s asking for the loan to be able to pay cash for the meat and not have any debts with the firm because sometimes they don’t deliver the meat as promised. Besides, he’d like to buy an additional freezer because the one he has is old. He trusts that this loan will be granted and with it he’ll be able to acquire more profits and repay the loan.

In this group: Crescencio , Hilario
