A loan of $2,575 helped a member buy fruit and vegetables to sell.


Maria Auxiliadora W Group's story

45-year old Sra. Juana lives with her common-law partner. She didn’t go to school. She has six children, four of whom attend school. Juana earns her living selling fruit and vegetables, a business she began when she needed to find a job. She has the support of her husband who is a businessman.

She has organized a group to seek a loan. She plans to use her share of the money to expand her business and buy more fruit and vegetables. Her wish is for her business to prosper so she can sell more. The other members of the group have businesses or work in agriculture growing tomatoes, onions, and garlic which they then sell.

It should be noted that ten people appear in the photo but only eight receive the loan.

In this group: Catarina , Maria , Ana , Juana , Maria , Maria , Maria , Lorenzo
