A loan of $3,850 helped a member buy cosmetics to sell.

San Pedro Pablo Group's story

The group called San Pedro Pablo is in its 9th loan cycle. All the members are currently carrying out an inquest into the elimination of poverty in order to know the situation of each one of the women. Four of them are at the “red level,” that is to say, having very low incomes.

Carmen is one such woman. She sells cosmetics of varied brands, and comments that she has a good clientele already because she always has very good products to offer her customers. She dreams of being able one day to have a salon where she can sell her products and not have to do so in the streets on foot.

Carmen is requesting her loan to invest in the purchase of cosmetics, and in this manner, to be able to continue making her sales and investing in her micro-enterprise.

In this group: Jissela, Mercedes, Maria, Liz, Noelia, Carmen, Alba, Jesica, Cynthia, Cecilia, Nelly, Maria, Analia*, Castorina*
