A loan of $4,425 helped a member to buy more second-hand tools.


Guapas Group's story

Las Guapas is a group of very beautiful women. They are on their fifth loan cycle and they are all very responsible and hard-working.

Guadalupe is one of the members of the group. She is 39 years old and is in a civil union. She lives with her three children, who are 25, 11, and 2 years of age. She makes a living by selling second-hand tools in street markets. The loan will help her to supply the tools so she can increase her sales and be better off economically. Guadalupe wants to set up a first-rate hardware store in a few years because she wants to progress more with her business and because she does not want to neglect her children.

In this group: Deyanira Anali, Guadalupe, Lydia, Maria Guadalupe, Mayra Teresa
