A loan of $4,525 helped a member to buy fruits and vegetables.

Laguna Verde Group's story

This group is made up of seven people, each of whom has her own business. They all live in a town called Coapilla, a lush green area that has a beautiful lake.

Manuela de Jesús is married to Dionisio and they have three children who depend on her. She has been married for twelve years and is very happy because her home is very together.

This is the 11th time that Manuela de Jesús has requested a loan through VisionFund, and she will use the money to buy fruits and vegetables, which will help her to increase her family income. She has a little area set up on her patio, where she displays the fruit and sells to her customers. She has been doing this for three years and eight months and she is very happy about her work.

Previously she used to bake bread and sell chickens, which were also productive activities for her. However she decided to use this loan to start her fruits and vegetables business to bring an income into her home. What she really wants is to continue to increase her purchases a little each day, so that her customers can find the items they want to buy.

The other members of the group are:

Amelia, who will use the money to buy pigs; María Rosario who will buy groceries; Yureni will buy poultry; María del Carmen will buy ingredients to make sausage; Dominga de Jesús will buy ingredients to bake bread; and María Erendida will buy bread.

In this group: Manuela De Jesús, Amelia , María Rosario , Yureni , María Del Carmen , Dominga De Jesús , María Erendida
