A loan of $400 helped a member to purchase fruits and vegetables to sell..


Duo Paz Y Amor Group's story

Elsa Elizabeth is a young worker who buys and sells vegetables and fruits in the municipal market. She also goes out to sell on market days. She does this work because it has helped her get ahead and she can support her parents. She has done this work for seven years and she has many customers who know her as a good seller. Occasionally, they will order vegetables in bulk, and unfortunately, she does not have enough capital to fill those orders. She is asking for this loan to purchase fruits and vegetables.

Olga Rosario works selling snacks. In the morning, she sells near a school in the community where she lives, and in the afternoon she sells in the town plaza. She sells atol [corn based drink], chuchitos [type of tamale], tostadas [corn tortillas topped with salsa], and other products. She needs the loan to get ahead and help her parents, who have few resources.
