A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy tables and chairs for her restaurant.


Amistad Y Progreso - Pincha Group's story

Tomasa is 45, married, and always a charming, enterprising member of the group. She is one of 8 members of the communal bank Amistad y Progreso - Pincha. Tomasa rents a restaurant space near her local market. She rises very early to purchase the supplies she needs to prepare her food.

This loan will be used to purchase tables and chairs because her clientele is growing. Her goal is to open other restaurants. Tomasa, wearing a white t-shirt and pink vest, is the third person on the left in the photo.

In this group: Tomasa , Osven , Elizabeth Patricia , Tarcila Eugenia , Rocio Elizabeth , Aurelino Pedro , Lin Dilmer , Henry Edwin
