A loan of $2,750 helped a member to buy fire extinguishers.

Divina Misericordia - El Tambo Group's story

Bertha, age 54, is married and has four minor children. She is a member of the Divina Misericordia – El Tambo communal bank.

She currently has a store distributing fire extinguishers. She and her husband tend to the store together. At the same time she sells natural medicinal products door to door.

The requested loan is for the remodeling and implementation of the store selling fire extinguishers. This gives her the opportunity to improve her income.

In the future she hopes to buy a car for transporting her merchandise.
