A loan of $2,825 helped a member to buy products for her store.

Francisquenses Group's story

Maria Joh is 31 years old and married. She studied at elementary school for six years. She has four children, three of whom are in school. Maria does domestic work and also works in commerce. She owns a store where she sells basic household products. She started out with a little capital, thanks to the support of her husband, and now has six years experience. Her husband makes woven products.

Maria decided to form a group so that she could request a loan that she would use to expand her business capital. She will buy more products such as water, soda, juice, canned food, noodles, candies, water, sweet treats, dairy products (cheese and milk) and other products. She would like to improve and better stock her store. The other members of this group work in different business activities such as selling food and basic household products, selling traditional clothing, selling school supplies, making pants and skirts, and raising animals.

In this group: Maria Joh, Blanca Isabel, Lidia, Maria Paxtor, Elida Judyt, Guisela Heidy, Amanda Lisbeth, Olimpia, Lucia Odilia, Elda Elisama, Juliana Floridalma, Lucia, Sandra, Santos, Juana Vicente
