A loan of $3,925 helped a member to buy catalog merchandise.


Quiajola Group's story

Ester is married and 26. She completed elementary school and has two children, one of whom is a student. She sells catalog merchandise, a business that started with low sales; she now has six years of experience. Her husband, who is a merchant, is supportive. She decided to form a communal bank to apply for a loan, which she will use to buy catalog merchandise to sell. She hopes that her business will grow with more capital to buy inventory and, thereby, generate more income. The other group members are merchants, artisans, and farmers.
