A loan of $1,650 helped a member to buy beauty products.


Siempre Adelante Group's story

Mr. Juan is a member of the communal bank "SIEMPRE ADELANTE". He is married, has two children, and works as a public transport driver. Unfortunately his income does not cover all of the household expenses so he helps his wife with her beauty product sales business. Some of the customers are friends and work colleagues. Many times he accompanies his wife to visit customers and handle payment collection. This allows them to have extra income so they can enjoy a better quality of life and give their children an education and proper nutrition. They are thinking about opening another business to sell not only beauty products but other items such as gifts, costume jewelry, etc. out of their home. The loan will be used to buy beauty products such as make-up, perfumes, talcum powder, shampoo, etc. They want to take advantage of this time of year when there is more demand because of Christmas parties. The communal bank "SIEMPRE ADELANTE" is comprised of seven members who all live in Ventanilla Callao.
