A loan of $4,875 helped a member to buy bingo cards to sell.

Buena Fe Group's story

'Buena Fe' are starting their 15th loan cycle with the Women's Committee program. They are all working hard and putting everything they've got into growing their micro-businesses. They took part in the 'Poverty Elimination' survey and found that three members are living below the poverty line, which is to say that they have very low incomes.

One of the members of this group is Celsa who, in the last survey she completed, was at level one on the poverty scale. Through her continual hard work and effort, and by applying the actions of a successful woman, she is improving her situation. Among other work, Celsa sells bingo cards and lottery tickets. It is also necessary to highlight the work of the loan officers who follow up on training sessions and make any checks that are needed. In addition, they encourage the women to work hard to break out of poverty.

Celsa is requesting this loan to buy her bingo cards. This will help her to realize her business plan and, in turn, help her to improve her income.

In this group: Maria, Griselda, Ailza, Celsa, Liz, Nidia, Mary, Nilda, Marcelna, Alva, Patricia, Ana, Basilicia, Monica, Teresa
