A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy products for the store.


Los Comerciantes 2 Group's story

Carlos Rene is 30 years old and single. He didn't have the opportunity to study. He works running a store. He started this business because he noticed that there was no store in his community and he had the chance to improve his income. He organized a group to be able to apply for a loan, which he will use to buy products to expand the store that he has. He will buy carbonated water, juice, sweets, and other things that sell well in his store. In the future, he hopes to have a large place on the side of the road, to have more customers. The other members work in trade. One of the men in the photo did not qualify for a loan.

In this group: Rosa Natividad, Carlos Rene, Daniel, Eulalio
