A loan of $1,400 helped a member to invest in the purchase of beauty products that are currently at reduced prices because it is the Christmas season.


Trabajando En Grupo Group's story

Mrs. Silvia Edith is 47 years old, and married with 4 children who are still under her care. They are her biggest motivation for getting ahead, and paying for their education is the reason she must work. Mrs. Silvia Edith is part of the group, "Trabajando en Grupo", which was recently formed with 7 other people, all of whom have the same goal of improving their lives through work and each other's support. For the past 10 years she has been working in the sale of beauty products through catalogs. She sells them to friends, neighbors and family members, and she takes advantage of discounted prices when purchasing her inventory. She will use this loan to purchase perfumes, creams and cosmetics to sell.

In this group: Silvia Edith, Johana Margoth, Carmen Luz, Carmen Fabiola, Katherine Vanessa, Margarita Beatriz, Emperatriz Olinda, Irma Isabel
