A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Las Turquesas Group's story

Silviana is single and lives in a town that celebrates the feast day of Santo Domingo on April 25th. She requested the loan to buy merchandise to stock her grocery store that she’s had for ten years and that she comments she does well in because her income has improved very much.

She started out on her own initiative because she also wants to help her parents with household income and she states that she’s also done well here in that she’s been able to take care of some debts. What she wants is that with income and the loan she requested her small business will continue growing.

The group members are: María del Rosario who will invest the loan in fast food and will buy clothes to sell; Javier who will invest in notions and bonnet supplies; Faustina who will invest in fast food and Martha Leticia in catalogue sales of Terra brand shoes.
