Pintadillera Group's story

Sara, 33, lives with her husband; she has two children who depend on her. She lives in her own house and has been a grocer for ten years; she sells basic grains, dairy products, juices, meats, canned goods, etc. She sells to friends and neighbors in her community who visit her daily to buy what they need for their homes.

Sara is a humble, hardworking woman who wants to get ahead with her business. She’s requesting a loan to buy packaged snacks, chicken, meats, detergent, rice, sugar, beans, bread, water, toilet paper, pasta, sauces, etc. With support from the loan she hopes to improve the business and have higher profits because she’ll have more products to offer her customers. She’s happy to continue working with Prisma as well as with her fellow members who have made her group leader.

Isis has a mini-grocery store and Lorenza sells tortillas and her dream is to improve her house and her business.
