A loan of $4,850 helped a member to buy perfume to sell.


El Manantial Group's story

The committee is called “El Manantial” (The Spring) and they are in their 12th cycle with 24 members. It’s a group that stands out in the neighborhood because they are very united, mutually supportive and responsible with each other. They have a great enterprising spirit since they carry out joint projects in order to support themselves.

Sonia is one of the members of the group and she comments that she sells all kinds of perfume. Thanks to her effort and dedication she’s succeeded in getting ahead and gradually improve her income day to day. She comments that she does very well because she has a very good clientele who always buys the perfume she sells and thanks to that income she’s able to help her family.

She requested the loan to buy perfume both for men and for women to continue working and offering a wider selection to her customers. Sonia, like her fellow members, is grateful for the opportunity for success they are receiving.
