A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy fish for later sale.


San Antonio Ii Group's story

The San Antonio II Women's Committee was formed in 2010. Presently it is maD. up of 11 members, and with a lot of effort, they are already in their third loan cycle; together and in solidarity within the program. They help one another achieve their objective, which is to work to support their families financially.

One very moving story is that of Ermelinda, who sells fish. She says that through this business, her family's finances improved considerably. This enables her to also help her husband with the household expenses, and with their children's schooling. One of her plans is to have a store where she can sell the varieties of fish that she has, as she knows that in that way she will attract more customers.

She is applying for the loan in order to buy fish for supplying her business. She is grateful to the Fundación for the opportunity it has given to her; since obtaining a loan will be a big help with her plans.
