A loan of $3,100 helped a member to purchase notebooks, Vinifan, pens, and folders.


Union Progreso Group's story

María is a member of the community bank "Unión Progreso", which is made up of 11 hardworking women from the Prosperity Program. María is 53 years old and separated. She has five children, one of whom is still dependent on her.

María has worked as a seamstress for more than three years and slowly improved her economic stability. With the good use of her profits, she recently opened a bookstore in her home. María is an earnest woman whose work has been able to support her children's education.

With the goal of continuing to expand her bookstore, she is asking for this loan to purchase school supplies such as notebooks, Vinifan [clear plastic covering for textbooks], pens, folders, and other items. María's dream is to continue expanding her bookstore.

The Unión Progreso community bank is thankful for the loan provided since it makes their progress possible.
