A loan of $4,825 helped a member buy lingerie to sell.


Cerrito Group's story

The Women’s Committee named Cerrito was formed in 2008 thanks to one of the members who contacted an adviser that also had a group in the area. The group is in its 12th loan cycle and with a lot of sacrifice and hard work they are getting ahead.

Leonidas is the president of the group and says the previous loan cycles have shown that she can help her fellow members in many ways. She sells lingerie and says that she has a good customer base because they always make orders and buy her merchandize. She is a very hardworking person with the drive to get ahead and be someone important in life.

She needs the loan to buy all types of lingerie to meet some of the orders that she has as well as improve her income.

In this group: Leonidas, Liduvina , Maria, Cantalicia , Rumilda , Antoliana , Josefa , Marisel , Fidelina , Maria, Felicita , Justa , Felicita , Sadi , Lorenza , Susana , Ana , Mirian *
