A loan of $800 helped a member to buy ingredients to make food.


Orión Group's story

Three women belong to Orión Group, each working in her respective job. María Olga is the one who was interviewed. She is a widow and is responsible for two children. María Olga requested the loan to buy ingredients to make food, work she has been doing for six months. It's going well for her, since she feels very comfortable with this work because she prepares the food in her home. She was inspired to do this work to have her own income, and so support herself to give the necessities to her children, who are her responsibility and continue studying so they will be able to finish their academic studies. What María Olga most wants is that this little job and the loan increase her earnings so she can rent a place in the market to be able to sell the food she makes more easily. The members of this group are Macarena, who requested the loan to buy Fraîche brand perfumes, and Adalea, who will buy Avon, Jafra, Blondi, and Fuller cosmetics.

In this group: Macarena, Adalea , Maria Olga
