Gs 11 De Julio Group's story

Daysy earns her living in business, primarily selling groceries. She has three years of experience. The business has helped her get ahead and has been her family's main source of income. The store is located on a main street of her community, frequented by lots of people who work in the tobacco factories, who are also her customers. Daysi is seeking the support of a loan to purchase products like sugar, butter, soap, rice, sausages, cookies, spaghetti, and other items so she can provide good service to her customers. She typically sells on credit, so she dreams of having the best grocery store in the area, stocked up with all the products her customers want. She also wants to buy a motorbike to go and sell merchandise in the mountains. Daysi is seeking a group loan with the following borrowers: Betina, a businesswoman with four years of experience, who has a grocery store (selling basic grains, bicycle spare parts, and school supplies); and Heliodora, who has five years of experience, and whose principal business is selling men's clothing, shirts, skirts, undergarments, children's clothing, and groceries.

In this group: Daysi Carolina, Betina Milagro, Heliodora
