A loan of $5,700 helped a member to buy footwear.


Serenidad Group's story

The 'Serenidad' Women's Committee was formed on January 17th, 2009. The group has 15 female members who are currently in their 14th loan cycle.

One of the members of this group is Lidia, who helps her family by selling footwear. She says that her business is doing very well as she always has very good footwear available and this pleases her customers a lot. Her goal is to one day have a large shoe store and to keep working for her family.

Lidia is requesting this loan to invest in buying all kinds of footwear so that she can fill the orders that she has from some of her customers and also attract new customers.

In this group: Iluminada, Mercedes, Liz, Julia, Concepción, Lidia, Antonia, Dionicia, Lidia, Celia, Catalina, Liz, Concepcion, Daisy, Cynthia
