A loan of $4,850 helped a member to buy beer, wine, whisky, etc.

29 De Enero Group's story

The 20 members of this communal bank work in a variety of business activities and each woman sacrifices herself to improve her situation.

One of the members, Isabel, sells liquor for a living. She defines herself as a very hard-working, determined person. She claims business is going well and she has a very good customer base. Her highest sales volume usually occurs on the weekends when more customers come around. Her goal is to continue growing so that one day she can have a well-stocked store.

She is requesting a loan to buy beer, wines, whisky and other beverages. This is in an effort to have enough inventory to fill customer demand.

All the members are grateful for this opportunity.
