A loan of $2,950 helped a member to pay for merchandise that she will resell and install a floor for her grocery business.

Las Muchachitas Del Ranchito Group's story

The 8 members of LAS MUCHACHITAS DEL RANCHITO community bank are: Adelaida, Adriana, Cecilia Martha, Sara Simona, Yuvi, and Teresa.
Cecilia Martha has a grocery business. She is married and has a 12-year old son. She will use part of the loan to stock her store and the rest to carry out much-needed improvements. She only has a dirt floor now and the store floods when it rains. The investment will help her to improve the business and stock the merchandise she sells. For the future, she wants a larger store. She hopes her son will eventually help her with the business so that he doesn't have to go somewhere else to find work.

In this group: Adelaida, Adriana Edith, Cecilia, Martha Elizabeth, Sara, Simona Herlinda*, Teresa, Yuvi Yazmin
