A loan of $2,425 helped a member buy merchandize for her convenience store.

La Buena Amistad Group's story

Julia has had her grocery store for 18 years, she arranged an area in her home and began selling only soft drinks and saw that people asked for more items she started to stock her business with more merchandise, especially basic household goods. With her business she was able to help her children get an education and settle some basic household debts. Since Julia’s convenience store was the only one in the area she did very well for some time, unfortunately she got sick and could not operate her store, at present, she feels a bit better and wants to start over. The loan will be used to buy merchandize like soft drinks, detergents, and toilet paper; basic household goods are her best sellers. Julia hopes to keep working in her convenience store since it has helped her continue to get ahead. Julia is a member of “The Good Friendship” communal bank, which has 10 members.
