A loan of $4,775 helped a member to buy beauty products to sell.


La Fortaleza Group's story

Ana is a private nurse and works in a home. She has 4 children and she works a lot for their sake in order to support them and give them a good education, since she is separated. On the advice of a friend, she started to sell beauty products: this gives her additional income with which to pay for necessities and especially for her children's education. She sells her products to neighbours, friends, and colleagues, who are potential clients. In the future, she would like to set up a bigger business where she would sell a greater variety of products. Ana belongs to communal bank La Fortaleza. With the loan she just received, she will buy various beauty products such as perfume, cream and make-up. Thus she will be able to move forward and achieve the objectives she set for herself. Ana is shown on the upper right (inset photo).
