A loan of $750 helped a member purchase new varieties of clothing in larger quantity.


La Fuerza, Group 3's story

Lujida is a 44-year-old woman who lives with her daughter and two grandchildren in a poverty-stricken community called Los Guaricanos, on the outskirts of the national capital. She has made a small business for herself of selling shoes and clothing from her house, and occasionally along the streets in her community. She is asking for this loan to expand her inventory—specifically she would like to buy a bigger quantity of clothes, as well as a wider variety. With a better variety she can begin to attract new customers, and consequently increase her income.

Her goal is to first grow and expand her business to a new and more profitable level. After that she says she will use her extra income to help give her grandchildren a better and more comfortable life than she has had; she wants to help them grow into smart and good adults.

Lujida says she knows that with God’s help, and this loan, her business will surely grow much stronger. She is very thankful to all of you out there who are helping her by supporting her in this loan!
