A loan of $2,775 helped a member to buy a variety of soft drinks, fried snacks, candies, and crackers for her store.


González Comercio Group's story

Doña Lidia is another of the members of this group. She has a little business in her house where she sells soft drinks, crackers, and candies, since the soccer field is across the street from her house, and this helps her have more sales. She has now had this business for five years, and she comments that what she likes most about her business is that she earns money without leaving her house. She will buy a variety of soft drinks, fried snacks, candies, and crackers to stock her business.

Lidia is married and has seven children. Her youngest daughter is still in school. With this loan, Lidia will be able to help pay for the education of her daughter. In the future, Lidia hopes to continue expanding her business to help her daughter continue her studies.

The other members of the group are Maria del Socorro, who sells groceries; Zeferina, who sells snacks; and Fernanda, who sells footwear.
