A loan of $3,225 helped a member to buy beauty products and lingerie to sell during the Christmas shopping season.


Juice Group's story

Carmen is the president of the "Juice" (Juntos Unidos Iremos al Camino del Éxito) communal bank. The group is made up eleven members who are both friends and neighbors, and whose aim is reaching their goals together. Among them is Carmen, the president, who is 35, married, and the mother of two children.

Carmen is a teacher, and also works every day selling beauty products and lingerie. Thanks to sales of both products, she has been able to generate steady income for her household. She intends to use the recent loan to buy more beauty products, such as skin creams, and lingerie to sell during the Christmas shopping season.

In the future she would like to start a beauty products store and expand her sales to different areas of the city. As with Carmen, each member of the group has their own particular goal, which for them means success, improving their business finances, and financial stability for their families.

In this group: Carmen Victoria, Rosa Elena, Magdalena, Luciana Flora, Maria Elena, Esther Mercedes, Wilver, Elva Carolina, Claudia Fidela, Irene Ruth, Juan Miguel
