A loan of $900 helped a member to buy merchandize to sell.


Mujeres De Chisac Group's story

Señora Catarina is married, 29 years old, and never had the opportunity to study. She makes a living selling clothes at her local market. She started this business with little capital and with financial help from her mother. Today, she has eight years of experience and is supported by her husband, who works in the same job as her. Catarina has organized a group and is requesting a loan to buy merchandize, including clothing, t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, vests, socks etc. With the loan she will attract more customers, since she can offer a greater variety of merchandize. The other members make a living in commerce, handicrafts and raising animals.

In this group: Catarina , Teresa , Humbelina
