A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy medicines to sell.

Santa Isabel Momos Group's story

Hilda Demetria is 39 years old, married, and completed 3 years of 'educación primaria' (education for children aged 7-14). She has four children, three of whom are in school. Hilda Demetria's business is selling natural medicines. She started out selling medicines in the streets and currently has 15 years experience.

Hilda Demetria formed a group so that she could request a loan to buy medicines for re-sale. In the not-so-distant future, she would like to have another sales location so that she can make more profits. The other members of her group work in farming and commerce.
