El Futuro Group's story

This group consists of four enterprising women. Marta Elena, 53, is married with two children aged 18 and 15. She used to just work selling Avon cosmetics but now for the last 38 years her business has been a beauty salon and selling cosmetics house to house. She’s been a client of the institution for nine years and is asking for the loan to pay cash to buy assorted beauty products like hair dye, Keratina [hair-care product], special hair-care shampoo, acrylic fingernails, etc.

Ruth, 36, sells soup, nacatamales [Nicaraguan-style tamales] and has a home-based grocery store; Celia, 53, butchers pigs and Martha Salvadora, 46, sells soup, fried fast-food and tortillas.
