A loan of $3,250 helped a member to buy groceries to sell.


La Buchicata Group's story

This group is called 'La Buchicata'. It has 11 members. They are all hard-working people who, since they were very young, have known what it means to earn their daily bread and earn the love of their families through hard work. The group's representative is Jacinto, who is better known as Don Chinto by his fellow group members.

Don Chinto is a 52-year-old man who has been working since he was very young. He started out working in a grocery store and always wanted his own store. He worked and saved so that he could own his own small store and, thanks to the profits he made, he was able to grow the business and become his own boss.

Don Chinto requested this loan to buy more groceries such as cookies, soap, coffee, milk, soft drinks, yogurt, juices and shakes.
