A loan of $3,125 helped a member to purchase a display case.

Mujeres Buscando Un Futuro Group's story

María has a display case for her products. She sells beauty products and sweets such as cookies, pop, chocolates, etc. The business is in her home, allowing her to be near to her children. With her income from this work, she supports her daughter who is studying nursing, helping her at least with transportation and various essential materials for her studies. Maria belongs to the "Mujeres Buscando un Futuro" ["Women in Search of a Future"] group. This allows her to feel that she is saving and progressing, and thanks to this group she has gotten ahead and been able to maintain her business and save. With this new loan she will purchase a larger display case which will allow her to have more products and thus more sales in the future. She sees the possibility of opening a grocery store in her home. She has the space and only needs to fit it out before she can start.
