A loan of $5,700 helped a member to buy supplies for her business.


Mar Azul Group's story

Margarita, who is the woman sitting on the sofa with short, light hair and grey boots, belongs to the Mar Azul del Cañete Communal Bank. In this bank, most of the members sell seafood, clothing, or are seamstresses.

Margarita sells clothing at the business that she owns with her husband. They also sell groceries. They started this business about 2 years ago and only sold fish, since they are fishermen.

The loan that they have requested will be used to buy more merchandise for their business. She knows that everything will go well with her business' sales.

The thing that she likes most about working with Fondo Esperanza is the fact that she has found great support and unity in the group to which she belongs.

In this group: Sonia Ines, Daniel Orlando, Alejandra Fabiola, Patricia Eugenia, Virginia Elizabeth, Pamela Elizabeth, Margarita Magdalena, Manuel Segundo, Yessica Yoana, Margarita De Las Mercedes, Nirza Dilia, Ximena Alejandra, Hortencia Andrea, Jose Luis, Camila Soledad, Eliana Ester, Margot
