A loan of $5,200 helped a member to buy clothing and shoes to sell.


29 De Septiembre Group's story

The communal bank "29 de Setiembre" is in its 14th Women's Program loan cycle. They have taken the poverty elimination survey which determined that two members are below the poverty line, with very low incomes. Nevertheless, they are working hard to grow.

One of the members, Marta, sells clothing and shoes as a street vendor. She says that at first it was difficult to get into business but thanks to the training she received, she has improved considerably. She is a very hard worker who tries to improve every day to continue supporting her family and giving them what they need.

Marta is requesting a loan to buy clothing and shoes so she can continue with her sales activity and generate the income her family and business need in order to continue.

In this group: Irene, Celia, Nilda, Juana, Graciela, Ramona, Elodia, Zulmira, Mercedes, Vilma, Ramona, Myrian, Rosa, Marta, Gladis, María, Miguelina
