A loan of $1,775 helped a member to purchase cases of beer to sell.

Amigas Unidas Group's story

Majella has been president of the "Amigas Unidas" ("Friends United") Community Bank since it was formed, and she feels her fellow members appreciate the confidence she provides. Majella is 50 years old, married and has a grown son who is 20. She makes a living selling beer and stores the beverages in her home. She doesn't need to have a sign or do advertising since her business is well known in her area. She plans to use the loan to maintain her stock of beer, which is approximately between 10 and 20 cases. Majella dreams of being a local distributor; her neighbors already ask her about it. But the capital required for that investment is large, so she has to work even harder to be able to fulfill it.
