A loan of $725 helped a member to buy clothing.


El Horizonte De Oquendo - Callao Group's story

Livia is 37 years old. Her three children are the best motivation for her to continue striving. At the moment, she is a member of the Communal Bank "El Horizonte de Oquendo".


Livia wants to start a business and her first loan will enable her to buy clothes to sell. The godmother of her children is in the same line of work, so she encouraged Livia and showed her where to acquire inexpensive clothing that she could resell directly at a later time. Having a business will enable Livia to generate income for her family's expenses. Most of all, she wants to help her children with their studies. She was recently elected to become the president of the Communal Bank, so she wants to serve faithfully in her assigned position.
