A loan of $6,125 helped a member to buy cosmetology materials.


Emmanuel Group's story

Esperanza, age 48, is a member and the treasurer of the Emmanuel comunal bank, which is comprised of seven members. She is divorced and has two children. One of them is independent, and the other is a student.

She tells us that she is a cosmetologist, and that she works in a beauty salon close to her house. With her work effort she is helping her daughter pay for her education.

In her free time she sells clothes by order. She tells us that she also purchased a car, and she is making it work for an extra income.

She will use the loan to buy cosmetology materials. In the future she plans to make her dream of establishing a beauty salon in her house come true.

In this group: Esperanza Marcela, María, Hilaria Ursula, Amalia*, Jacqueline, Elizabeth Susan, Bertha Luz
