A loan of $2,650 helped a member to buy and sell chicken and sausage.

Cantzelaj Group's story

Angelina is a 39 year old married woman. She completed two years of primary school education and has four children, three of whom are in school. She is engaged in selling meat, specifically chicken and sausage. She started this business selling only sausages and to date, she has already had ten years of blessed experience. She has the help of her husband who works in a gas station.

She organized a group and decided to request a loan that would be used to raise capital and in this way, purchase more chicken and sausage as she has more demand. In the future, she wants to have a large local to be able to distribute wholesale. The rest of the group are engaged in trade, selling vegetables and meats. It is important to note that eight woman appear in the photograph but only seven of them were granted the loan.
