A loan of $900 helped a member to buy three pigs for her butcher shop.

Unido Group's story

Ida is an entrepreneur from the city of Bilwi who is married and has six children. For five years she has been running her market stall selling pork meat and other goods such as yucca plant, malanga (edible root), quequisque (coco yam), bananas and filipitas.

She is requesting a loan to buy three pigs to fatten and then sell at her shop. She is struggling to improve the stall where she works since it is in disrepair. She wants to build a stand out of cement.

John is a kind man who earns a living with his carpentry business. He makes furniture on an order basis and plans to use the loan to buy machinery for his workshop so he can improve the quality of his products and shorten delivery time.

Marcela is a cheerful woman who has a stand at the Bilwi market where she sells basic goods: rice, beans, corn, yucca plant, malanga, quequisque, and bananas. She wants a loan to stock her business with other products in popular demand.
