A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy and sell spices for food.

Laguna Seca Group's story

Maria is married and is 27 years old. She did not have the opportunity to go to school. She has two children, one of whom is in school. She works selling spices for food. She started this business with the help of her mother and today she has seven years of experience. She has the support of her husband, who works in trade. She decided to organize a group to be able to apply for a loan, which she will use to increase her working capital and supply her sales. She hopes in the future to have a place in the market where she can distribute her wares. The rest of the group members work in weaving and trade. Twelve women appear in the photograph, but only eleven of them are receiving the loan.
